The following study examines the historical experience of alienation in Denmark between 1961 and 1989. The concept is first examined on a philosophical level; Karl Marx' Paris-manuscripts (1844) as well as Herbert Marcuses book One-dimensional Man, are read and analyzed in order to discover a common theoretical ground on which the young people of 68' based their perspective. This philosophical analysis is followed by a historical analysis of two important expressions of alienation in the period; Peter Watkins' The Seventies People (1975), as well as Red Mother's album The Concrete Heart (1975). The study concludes that the experience of alienation was a visible and significant perspective at the time, but that the concept lost its usability as society, politics and the scientific theoretical paradigms changed.
