Transcript-Verlag

»Realism as Protest« focuses on the »realistic method« developed by Alexander Kluge to counter the limited conception of reality generated by the mainstream media. Placing emphasis on a series of innovative productions developed 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.
