Das Busenattentat auf Adorno

 + + + Material

Im Hörsaal VI der Frankfurter Uni, Vorlesung "Einführung in die Dialektik" TWA

die so genannten "Busen-Aktion" vom 22. April 1969. Kurz nach Beginn seiner Vorlesung "Einführung in das dialektische Denken" wurde der 65-jährige Gelehrte lautstark unterbrochen. Plötzlich sprangen drei langhaarige, in schwarze Ledermäntel gehüllte Studentinnen auf das Podium, bestreuten ihn mit Rosenblüten, entblößten ihre Brüste und versuchten, ihn zu küssen.Adorno, ein affärenreicher Mann, verließ fluchtartig den Saal und sagte die Ver- anstaltung auf unbestimmte Zeit ab.

In einem Flugblatt der Basisgruppe Soziologie hieß es: "Adorno als Institution ist tot."

"a lecture in his course on dialectical thought before an audience of nearly one thousand students at the University of Frankfurt, the eminent Frankfurt School sociologist and Marxist cultural critic Theodor W. Adorno found himself in an unusual situation. A student in one of the back rows interrupted him, demanding that he engage in "self-criticism." Another student silently walked up to the blackboard and wrote the following words: "He who only allows dear Adorno to rule will uphold capitalism his entire life." After Adorno told the class that they would have five minutes to decide if his lecture should continue, three female students dressed in leather jackets rushed the podium. They showered him with roses and tulips, exposed their breasts, and tried repeatedly to kiss him. Incensed and humiliated, Adorno stormed out of the lecture hall.

This incident, which came to be known as the Busenaktion ("breast action"), has never figured with much prominence in American studies of the Frankfurt School." q:http://www.fotolog.com/ashbrg/38092876/
