„Bloggerinnen sind die heutigen Kritikerinnen, Passanten die neuen Korrespondenten, ambitionierte Laien gefragte Darsteller/innen im professionellen Theaterbetrieb: Kultur und Medien finden sich gegenwärtig in einem Transformationsprozess, der die traditionelle Rolle von Expertinnen und Experten neu definiert.
