Abstract

The twentieth century has been described (e.g., Piskorski 2015 ) as a century
of displacement. While globally the comparative scale of involuntary population
movement may not have diff ered signifi cantly from earlier centuries, its
perception has changed radically, leading in the early twenty- fi rst century to
the dramatic resurgence of xenophobic populism across Europe and beyond
(see Kaya 2017 ; De Cesari and Kaya 2019). Throughout the ‘refugee crisis’ of
the 2010s, the German government’s moderate policy towards new migrants
was widely criticised. The ideological foundation for that policy was, arguably,
the country’s experience of integrating millions of ethnic German expellees
and refugees from Central and Eastern Europe in the aftermath of the Second
World War.

Abstract

Traditional arts practices and festivals have attracted increasing and diverse
attention in the European context since policymakers discovered ‘culture’ as a
resource in the 1980s (see, e.g., Kilday 1998 ). Their impact on their respective
communities of practice, modes of production and exchange value in contemporary
European society is under the spotlight from various angles within the
newly emerged fi eld of ‘festival studies’, which is deeply connected to policy
issues (Frost 2016 ). However, much of this interest is instrumentally concerned
with revenue potential, leaving key concepts, such as heritage, identity and
indeed Europe, defi ned in rather vague and often contradictory terms (Kockel,
Nic Craith and Frykman 2012 ; Logan, Kockel and Nic Craith 2015 ; K ø lvraa
2016 ; L ä hdesm ä ki 2016 ; Whitehead and Bozo ğ lu 2017 ). Moreover, the number
and range of events labelled as ‘festival’ is growing (Frost 2016 : 569), requiring
a broader perspective on performances of heritage and identity.
