Das Phänomen Straßenmusik: Teil einer städtischen Identität? : eine Analyse am Fallbeispiel Dublin

  • The objective of this work is to understand the significance of street music for the city of Dublin and to what extent street music is part of the collective identity of its inhabitants. The idea behind this topic is this: A modern city stands for concentrated diversity. Despite this enormous diversity of people, ideas and beliefs, there are certain factors that every identity in a city shares: in this case, it is the street music. The work first introduces the research „Das Dublin Projekt. Die Rolle der Straßenmusik in der Hauptstadtkultur" (The Dublin Project. The role of street music in the capital city culture) of 2018 and uses selected points of analysis to illustrate the observed high value of street music as well as the process of the research and an overview of the applied scientific methods. In the second part of this work, the actual research-thesis will be explained and various theories on „identity" will be illustrated. For this purpose, selected theories are used to interpret the own findings with regard to the research-thesis. The focus here is on urban and collective identity theories. Finally, the answers to the questions posed will be given as well as an outlook on possible, supplementary and further research. Medial support of this work comes from attached photos of the described scenes as well as from map sections showing the distances covered and the hotspots of the research.
