Download e-book for kindle: Chinakinder: Moderne Rebellen in einer alten Welt (German by Jörg Endriss,Sonja Maaß

By Jörg Endriss,Sonja Maaß

Viele junge Chinesen wollen nicht mehr nur Karriere und Reichtum als Lebensziel sehen und mit Scheuklappen durch Schule und Universität getrieben werden. Eingezwängt zwischen den Erwartungen von Staat, Familie und Gesellschaft haben sie Träume, die für uns selbstverständlich sind: Sie wollen ihren Lebensweg selbst bestimmen, etwas Sinnvolles erreichen und eine Arbeit finden, die ihnen Erfüllung bringt. Dafür müssen junge Menschen in China allerdings große Widerstände überwinden und sich gegen konservative Eltern und traditionelle Konventionen durchsetzen. Als stille Rebellen versuchen viele, dem allgegenwärtigen Druck der Gesellschaft zu entfliehen.

Die Autoren Sonja Maaß und Jörg Endriss sind durch China gereist und haben aus vielen Gesprächen 30 eindrucksvolle und zugleich unterhaltsame images zusammengestellt, in denen junge Chinesen ihre Lebenswege, Werte und Meinungen schildern.

Lesen Sie von dem jungen Finalisten einer Schriftzeichen-Quizshow, von Studenten, die schon zu Beginn des Studiums komplett ausgebrannt sind, und von Punks, die ihren ganz eigenen chinesischen Rock-'n'-Roll-Lifestyle leben – aber auch von einem Mädchen in ihren Zwanzigern, das offiziell gar nicht existiert, von Wanderarbeitern, die in Kellern ohne Tageslicht wohnen, und Homosexuellen, die sich nicht mehr hinter der Fassade einer Ehe verstecken wollen. Treffen Sie einen Start-up-Gründer mit Visionen, eine Aktivistin, die sich gegen traditionelle Heiratszwänge stark macht, und junge Menschen, die in Hongkong an der entrance der größten Protestbewegung der letzten Jahre gestanden haben.

Das Buch wurde von der Robert-Bosch-Stiftung im Rahmen des Programms »Grenzgänger China-Deutschland 華德無界行者« gefördert.
