Beschreibung / Abstract

Realism as Protest draws on the »realistic method« developed by Alexander Kluge to counter the limited image of reality generated by the mainstream media. Focusing on innovative productions produced by Kluge, Schlingensief and Haneke, this groundbreaking study explores how the experimental form of their work in film, television and theatre facilitates thinking, discussion and debate about the possibilities for cultural and political change.


Tara Forrest lectures in Screen Studies at the University of Technology, Sydney. She is the author of »The Politics of Imagination: Benjamin, Kracauer, Kluge« (also published by transcript).


»Forrest's prose is clear throughout, and especially admirable for its succinct and precise explanation of complex ideas. This study is recommended to scholars and advanced undergraduate students alike.«
Jack Davis, Monatshefte, 108/4 (2016)
