In the communist regimes in Central and Southeastern Europe, which did not respect freedom of expression or freedom of conscience, it was still possible to achieve some measure of freedom despite the repressive measures taken by the state authorities. People occasionally succeeded in escaping or bypassing state censorship in various ways in order to express themselves obstinately – individually or in a (small) collective. This issue of Spiegelungen. Zeitschrift für deutsche Kultur und Geschichte Südosteuropas [Reflections: Journal for German Culture and History of Southeastern Europe] examines this topic through an interdisciplinary approach, discussing and reflecting on creative forms of creating and using open spaces in the sense of the historiographical concept of “obstinacy“. The language of the publication is German.
