The dark mirror : German cinema between Hitler and Hollywood by Lutz P Koepnick( Book )

18 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lutz Koepnick analyzes the complicated relationship between two cinemas--Hollywood's and Nazi Germany's--in this theoretically and politically incisive study. The Dark Mirror examines the split course of German popular film from the early 1930s until the mid 1950s, showing how Nazi filmmakers appropriated Hollywood conventions and how German film exiles reworked German cultural material in their efforts to find a working base in the Hollywood studio system. Through detailed readings of specific films, Koepnick provides a vivid sense of the give and take between German and American cinema." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/ucal042/2001007068.html
Walter Benjamin and the aesthetics of power by Lutz P Koepnick( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walter Benjamin and the Aesthetics of Power explores Walter Benjamin's seminal writings on the relationship between mass culture and fascism. The book offers a nuanced reading of Benjamin's widely influential critique of aesthetic politics, while it contributes to current debates about the cultural projects of Nazi Germany, the changing role of popular culture in the twentieth century, and the way in which Nazi aesthetics have persisted into the present."--Jacket

On slowness : toward an aesthetic of the contemporary by Lutz P Koepnick( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speed is an obvious facet of contemporary society, whereas slowness has often been dismissed as conservative and antimodern. Challenging a long tradition of thought, Lutz Koepnick instead proposes we understand slowness as a strategy of the contemporary-a decidedly modern practice that gazes firmly at and into the present's velocity. As he engages with late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century art, photography, video, film, and literature, Koepnick explores slowness as a critical medium to intensify our temporal and spatial experiences. Slowness helps us register the multiple layers of time, history, and motion that constitute our present. It offers a timely (and untimely) mode of aesthetic perception and representation that emphasizes the openness of the future and undermines any conception of the present as a mere replay of the past. Discussing the photography and art of Janet Cardiff, Olafur Eliasson, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Michael Wesely; the films of Peter Weir and Tom Tykwer; the video installations of Douglas Gordon, Willie Doherty, and Bill Viola; and the fiction of Don DeLillo, Koepnick shows how slowness can carve out spaces within processes of acceleration that allow us to reflect on alternate temporalities and durations
Caught by politics : Hitler exiles and American visual culture( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caught by Politics recalls the exile of German and European visual artists and film practitioners in the United States. The book traces the paths and aesthetic strategies of Hitler exiles in the United States as ones of productive encounters and ironic cultural masquerades. While stressing creative transformations and performative self-reinventions, the accounts don't ignore the hardship of forced displacement. Caught by Politics encourages the reader to revise dominant and one-sided understandings of modernist culture and instead to engage with the various cross-cultural dialogues between European and American artists."--Jacket

Berlin School glossary : an ABC of the New Wave in German cinema by Roger F Cook( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Berlin School Glossary is the first major anthology to mark the increasing international importance of a group of contemporary German and Austrian filmmakers initially known as the Berlin School: Christian Petzold, Thomas Arslan, Christoph Hochhäusler, Jessica Hausner, and others. The study elaborates on the innovative strategies and formal techniques that distinguish these films, specifically questions of movement, space, spectatorship, representation, desire, location, and narrative. Abandoning the usual format of essay-length analyses of individual films and directors, the volume is organized as an actual glossary with entries such as bad sex, cars, the cut, endings, familiar places, forests, ghosts, hotels, interiority, landscapes, siblings, surveillance, swimming pools, and wind. This unique format combined with an informative introduction will be essential to scholars and fans of the German New Wave."--Page 4 of cover

Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller : works from the Goetz collection by Janet Cardiff( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The sound installations and sound images by the Canadian artist duo Janet Cardiff & Georges Bures Miller have received international acclaim. Over a period of years, Ingvild Goetz has incorporated an entire series of works by Cardiff (b. 1957 in Ontario) and Miller (b. 1960 in Alberta) into her collection. This publication is the first to present them all together, providing details about their creation and references and shedding light on their place in the artists' oeuvre. In doing so, particular focus is placed on the key importance of sound as well as the special way that Cardiff & Miller deal with this very important-yet usually only subliminally perceived-aspect of current media art

Generic histories of German cinema : genre and its deviations by Jaimey Fisher( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Generic Histories offers a fresh approach, tracing a series of key genres -- including horror, science fiction, the thriller, Heimat films, and war films -- over the course of German cinema history. It also addresses detective films, comedies, policiers, and romances that deliberately localize global genres within Germany - a form of transnationalism frequently neglected. This focus on genre and history encourages rethinking of the traditional opposition (and hierarchy) between art and popular cinema that has informed German film studies. In these ways, the volume foregrounds genre theory's potential for rethinking film history as well as cultural history more broadly."--Publisher's description
Distant readings : topologies of German culture in the long nineteenth century by Matt Erlin( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In nineteenth-century Germany, breakthroughs in printing technology and an increasingly literate populace led to an unprecedented print production boom that has long presented scholars with a challenge: how to read it all? This anthology seeks new answers to the scholarly quandary of the abundance of text. Responding to Franco Moretti's call for "distant reading" and modeling a range of innovative approaches to literary-historical analysis informed by the burgeoning field of digital humanities, it asks what happens when we shift our focus from the one to the many, from the work to the network. The thirteen essays in this volume explore the evolving concept of "distant reading" and its application to the analysis of German literature and culture in the long nineteenth century. The contributors consider how new digital technologies enable both the testing of hypotheses and the discovery of patterns and trends, as well as how "distant" and traditional "close" reading can complement each another in hybrid models of analysis that maintain careful attention to detail, but also make calculation, enumeration, and empirical description critical elements of interpretation. Contributors: Kirsten Belgum, Tobias Boes, Matt Erlin, Fotis Jannidis and Gerhard Lauer, Lutz Koepnick, Todd Kontje, Peter M. McIsaac, Katja Mellmann, Nicolas Pethes, Andrew Piper and Mark Algee-Hewitt, Allen Beye Riddell, Lynne Tatlock, Paul A. Youngman and Ted Carmichael. Matt Erlin is Professor of German and Chair of the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, and Lynne Tatlock is Hortense and Tobias Lewin Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, both at Washington University, St. Louis
