Hype, Hype, Super-Hype


A re:publica event

From the tiny Kreiszeitung in Syke to the Süddeutsche Zeitung, German journalism too is caught up firmly in the media’s transformation. The responses to digitisation vary widely, ranging from WhatsApp notifications of school closures to extremely elaborately produced Snowfall-like productions that nobody actually clicks on. We show the effort publications make in order to survive in the “content war”, and present the current subjects of journalistic hype. The audience can look forward to poetry slam, dub experiments, and YouTube performances.
