In journals, the reception and production of knowledge coincide. Using the example of French structuralism and its reception in the Federal Republic of Germany around 1966, the article shows that magazines did not simply depict or discuss theoretical “models” and “movements”, but actively formed them. Journalistic forms such as the editorial and the interview, and also text collages typical of magazines played an important role in this process. The specific materiality, publicity, and periodicity of journals thus became decisive factors in theoretical developments and intellectual upheavals.
