The German book hedo/art/scenes. Hedonismus in Kunst und Jugendszenen is edited by Jutta Zaremba and published with kopaed, Munich, 2013. It is the fifth book in the series Kunst Pädagogik Partizipation. The book chapters discuss the topic of hedonism in art and youth cultures. My chapter ‘Stimulation denn Simulation: Ist Larp hedonistisch?’ asks whether larp is hedonistic. I use such a normative question to invite the reader on a wild ride of reflections on topics as stimulation, simulation, leisure, work, fun, no-fun.
