Abstract in German

In the present media studies, based on an analysis of the ORF show »Blockstars«, it is to be examined whether and to what extent the representation in the broadcast, which is issued by the ORF as a “social report”, is reduced to clichéd approaches, or in that sense It can be interpreted that hip-hop stands as a symbolic configuration for the economic character of (post) modern youth cultures and indicates that youth culture can also be viewed as an “order-consolidating authority”. With a view to the hip-hop movement, which, as an authority critical of society, also pursues an independent political impetus, the question arises whether and to what extent the ORF format »Blockstars« should be interpreted in the sense of a youth-cultural context means whether and in what way this format fulfills and does justice to the public service mandate of the broadcaster, namely to critically question youth-related topics and present them in an appropriate form.
