Abstract

In 2018, the crisis of print media hit German pop journalism hard. Following Groove, Intro and Melodie und Rhythmus, Spex – the most influential magazine of German pop journalism – too ceased production. This article examines the history of Spex as one fraught with frequent endings and crises – a process that ultimately led to the self-historicization of the magazine.
