„Sobald Luca ins Quartier kommt, wird er verprügelt“ – Positionierungen Jugendlicher in Erzählungen zu Pöbeleien und Jugenddelinquenz im öffentlichen Raum

S. Landolt S. Landolt

Abstract. Theoretically, the paper draws on conceptualisations of fluid identities and space; methodologically, it is informed by positioning analysis. The case of the delinquent youth clique "FX Fighters" shows that members produce their neighborhood as a challenging space and simultaneously position themselves in this space: sometimes as powerful and fearless youths who dictate rules and keep others in check, sometimes as a youth clique whose vengeance fails. In addition, the paper demonstrates how assaults of violence are legitimated and normalised. In order to show the variance of such legitimating strategies and related subject positionings, material from additional group discussions on violent practices in public space is presented. Finally, the production of subjectivity as part of data construction is reflected.
