Continuous city( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuous City is a meditation on how contemporary experiences of location and dislocation stretch us to the maximum as our "networked selves" occupy multiple locations. From Shanghai to Los Angeles, Toronto to Mexico City, Continuous City tells the story of a traveling father and his daughter at home tethered and transformed by speed, hypermodernity, and failing cell phones. The characters they interact with pursue their own transnational business, from an internet mogul exploiting networking across the developing world to a nanny who blogs humorous stories about the people and places within her universe. --Continuous City Website

Hedda Gabler by Thomas Ostermeier( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heddas Lebensplan zerrinnt im schicken Bungalow zwischen Beton und Glas. Gegen ihre Neigung hat sie sich mit dem aufstrebenden Historiker Jørgen Tesman für ein Leben nach bürgerlichen Prinzipien entschieden. Ihre eigentliche Liebe, Eilert Løvborg, der in dubiosen Clubs seinen glänzenden Intellekt mit Drogen betäubt, bot finanziell und gesellschaftlich keine aussichtsreiche Perspektive. Als Hedda ernüchtert aus den Flitterwochen zurückkehrt, erfährt sie, dass Løvborg unterdessen solide geworden ist und ein Aufsehen erregendes kulturgeschichtliches Buch geschrieben hat. Tesmans einst aussichtsreiche Berufung zum Professor erscheint damit mehr als fraglich. Als die bürgerlichen Prinzipien also nicht halten, was sie einst versprachen, nämlich ökonomische Sorglosigkeit und Ansehen, beginnt Hedda, sich und ihre Umwelt zu hassen. Skrupellos verhöhnt sie ihren Ehemann und hintergeht ihn mit dem Hausfreund Brack. Aus Eifersucht zerstört sie auch die Verbindung zwischen Løvborg und Frau Elvsted, vernichtet dessen erfolgsträchtiges Werk, treibt ihn zurück in die Sucht und schließlich in einen Selbstmord "in Schönheit". Erbarmungslos attackiert sie die erdrückende Mittelmäßigkeit um sich herum. Manipulation und Lüge sind die Mittel, mit denen sie virtuos innerhalb nur eines Tages und einer Nacht diese von Aufstiegsdenken und Abstiegsangst dominierte Welt zum Einsturz bringt. Mit dem Gesicht eines eiskalten Engels und blechernem Stimmchen zeichnet Katharina Schüttler die Titelheldin mit undurchdringlicher Kühle und einer schnippisch-ungerührten Gleichmütigkeit und zieht zugleich faszinierend lässig die Strippen
