Alexandr Kluge

German film director, screenwriter and producer
The objective is autonomy. There is a conservative interest in the classicpublic sphere at a time when this public sphere is being destroyed. The classic public sphere of our cities is an achievement that has really only been functional for a very short time, and that is now severely threatened.More Alexandr Kluge quotes [12/22/2011 01:12:00]
I mean, theTrojan horse in itself is entirely meaningless. The central notion is thatthe arts alone, separate from the rest of society, are not capable of expression. They would somehow become purely academic.More Alexandr Kluge quotes [12/22/2011 01:12:33]
