Are the kids alright? On the question of how to address “antisocial” and “deviant” behaviour in today’s youths, the British government’s answer seems to be “more control and surveillance”. In German media, too, childhood and youth are increasingly linked to images of violent youths, armed pupils, and vandalism - caused by parental neglect and societal ignorance. Although no measures resembling the British ASBO have been taken so far, the Germans’ fear of their offspring seems to be rising. 

This development initially created an unease which then stimulated the organisation of an exhibition entitled “Are the kids alright?”.
