Book presentation: Strategies of Denial


"Strategien der Verweigerung – Untersuchungen zum politisch-ästhetischen Gestus unangepasster filmischer Artikulationen in der Spätphase der DDR" by Claus Löser (just been published in the DEFA Foundation Series) is about underground art film in the GDR, which mostly positioned itself against official media practice in the last decade of the SED regime.

The author will read passages from his dissertation that formed the basis of his book and will show excerpts of films by Gabriele Stötzer, one of the most active and maladjusted artists of 1980s GDR. Apart from Claus Löser, filmmakers Gabriele Stötzer and Thomas Werner will also be present and will take part in a Q&A session.

With the friendly support of the DEFA Foundation and the Federal Foundation for the Reconciliation of the SED Dictatorship. (October 5)
