Vergemeinschaftung und ihre Schranken. Dörfliches Vereinsleben im ehemals deutsch-deutschen Grenzgebiet als Spiegel einer "Phantomgrenze"?

Abstract : In this article, we examine community life in four villages, which were established directly on the former German-German border and are now located in Thuringia and Bavaria or Hesse. We investigate the contribution of the numerous associations that animate village life to the construction of local communities as well as the (phantom) borders they encounter. The study was conducted in two pairs of "twin villages" located directly on the former Iron Curtain, one on the side of the former GDR and the other on the side of the former FRG. We examine the organisation of associative life, its transformations as well as the imaginaries that guide it. We examine the convergences and divergences of the developments on both sides of the former inter-German border as well as the contribution of the associative life to the development of cross-border contacts. To what extent are these contacts based on transmitted and shared experiences or on new ones? What do they reveal about the power relations and social boundaries that run through local life?
