The Politics of Collective Attention Rudi Laermans Imagine we are in a small theatre venue somewhere in Western Europe. It’s 8.30 pm, the lights are dimmed, the performer steps in the direction of the proscenium, takes his or her place behind a lectern and starts talk- ing. That’s all that seems to happen in the eyes of all those present. Yet, something different also happens, and it is most of the time overlooked by those who are looking at a stage.

Migration, Political Art and Digitalization Sara Wiederkehr González Sometimes we walk around on dif ferent edges of this world, trying to find a place we can call home. Sometimes, we find a corner, or a clif f, and build a house there. We meet our neighbors and become friends with them. We find a job, a lover, and plant a garden. We feel free and creative. We learn, we are scared. Sometimes we just cross country borders, trying to find some peace, anywhere calm, a space to remain and be. We travel with our history, our own stories, our way of being.

Did the President walk into the hospital?“, fragte Nachrichtensprecher Frank Reynolds mit aufgeregter Stimme in die Muschel seines Studiotelefons. Er wiederholte die Frage: „Excuse me! Did the President walk …?“ Reynolds war mit einem Außenreporter verbunden, der von der Einlieferung Ronald Reagans ins George Washington Hospital berichten sollte. Reynolds, einer der Köpfe der ABC- „World News Tonight“ war bereits zuvor sehr erregt gewesen, nachdem die Nach- richten der Sender CBS

2. Politics, Piety, and Biomedicine I love you, you pay my rent (Pet ShoP BoyS) Over the past four decades, Malaysia has experienced a rapid economic transformation with sustained growth that is probably unique in the Muslim world (Abbott and Gregorios-Pippas 2010: 135 and Peletz 2013: 605). During the same period, Islamic symbols and idioms have become a much more prominent feature of social, cultural, and political relations in the country. Therefore, in certain parts of the world, Malaysia’s “political and religious elites enjoy a reputation … for
