The living community amongst newspapers

TAZ – © Anja_Weber

Flat rates, on the verge of being broke, and thereby drastic subscription promotions, such as for example white spots on the pages. To it, many discussions—the national daily newspaper, for short taz, in a way, made living community newspapers for residential communities.
The taz arose following the student Tunix congresses at the Berlin Free University in January 1978 and also as a reaction to the “German Autumn”. The first printing appeared on 27 September 1978. Admittedly, it carried the date of 22 September—it took five days for the processing of the 16 page “dummy No.1”.
The newspaper with the paw as emblem conceived and conceives itself as an alternative to the large publishing house dominated newspaper market. Taz is the publisher, the daily—publishing-cooperative eG. Today, taz is the seventh largest national daily paper in Germany. Since the move of the BILD, the two arguably opposed daily papers lie only a few hundred meters apart, in the Rudi Duschke Straße (taz) and the Kochstraße (BILD).
