The sublime in ridiculousness: A selection of pictorial works with sexual-erotic content of so called adolescents with behavioral disorders is examined under the biographic, social and cultural context of their creation. Drawings with sexual-erotic content are often considered as provocative and obscene, for this reason they unjustifiedly exist on the dark side of didactical practice. The erotic scrawls merely reflect, what is experienced as sexuality and erotic in our present culture. There are shown starting points of a didactic that is orientated at the life-world and that is enclosing art-therapeutic procedures. This didactic sets itsself the target to make possible an acting, symbolic and verbal-reflexive discussion for the adolescent. The real request of erotic scrawls is understood as a sublime one. Merely the cultural interpretation mediated through the mass-media gives the impression of the obscene. This again refers to the collective distraction concerning the sexual and erotic. Eine Auswahl von Bildgestaltungen sog. verhaltensauffälliger Heranwachsender mit sexuell-erotischem Inhalt wird einer Betrachtung unterzogen, die auf den biographischen, den sozialen und den kulturellen Kontext ihrer Entstehung gerichtet ist. Zeichnungen mit erotisch-sexuellem Inhalt gelten im didaktischen Bereich oftmals als provokativ und obszön, weshalb sie ungerechtfertigterweise ein Schattendasein fristen. Die erotischen Kritzeleien spiegeln lediglich das wider, was in der gegenwärtigen Kultur als Sexualität/Erotik erfahren wird. Es werden ferner Ansatzpunkte einer lebensweltorientierten, kunsttherapeutische Verfahren einschließenden, Didaktik aufgezeigt. Diese setzt sich zum Ziel, den Jugendlichen eine handelnde, symbolische und verbal-reflexive Auseinandersetzung mit ihren Konfliktthemen zu ermöglichen. Das eigentliche Anliegen erotischer Kritzeleien wird als ein erhabenes aufgefasst. Lediglich die massenmedial vermittelte kulturelle Einkleidung sorgt für den Eindruck des Obszönen, der wiederum auf die kollektive Verstörung bezüglich des Sexuell-Erotischen verweist.
