Lecture series Lektionen / Lessons

This talk will focus on Alexander Kluge's distinctive approach to history in his films as well as his literary and theoretical writings. Taking his recent works with AI image generation as the point of departure, the talk focusses on ways in which Kluge engages with dormant historical potentialities by reexamining and reimagining historical events.
