The Management of Hate

This chapter examines how young right-wing extremists in Berlin articulate their relations to immigrants and ethnic alterity and how they negotiate layers of otherness in order to trace, in their own voices, their rendering of dominant imaginations of the social and political landscape. It explains how the rise of ethnicity and of a corresponding notion of culture as standard markers of difference has gone hand in hand with the public celebration of diversity, its active interpellation, and new modes of visualization that it has acquired in Berlin. It also shows how the resonances between ethnic otherness, urban landscape, and political contrasts come into sharp focus around food, noting that political subjectivity unfolds between the Wurst (sausage) as proper German nutrition and the Döner (kebab) as the seductive sensuality of otherness.

Keywords:   right-wing extremists, Berlin, immigrants, ethnic alterity, ethnicity, diversity, ethnic otherness, food, political subjectivity
