Abstract:This paper is an only slightly enlarged version of the plenary paper prepared for Inter: A European Cultural Studies Conference in Sweden, by ACSIS, Norrköping 11-13 June 2007. On the basis of examples from historical docu-soaps and contemporary art involving reenactment, the interweaving of cultural knowledge production and cultural practices in the realm of experiencing and/or consuming the past are shown. Building on Kirshenblatt-Gimblett’s concept “meta-cultural production”, the term meta-historical productions is suggested and differentiated from a more politically motivated “culturalization” also present in heterogeneous societies. The paper further postulates that the experiential motivations inherent to phenomena such as reenacting are a major reason for the growing spectrum of meta-historical productions. They go, however, hand in hand with legitimating bureaucratic regimes such as heritage programs or efforts to bestow copyright on them, thus seeking to harness such phenomena for political, legal and economic purposes.
