As soon as you judge communication a little more rigorously, there is a possibility that the message will not be democratized. I have to say what I believe to be right. I have to spread out the statement among all the means of expression available to us at present.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:39]
Hidden in a long text, there are perhaps three lines that count.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:48]
I don't pay attention to target audiences and therefore I often hear that I am a ratings killer, somebody who fundamentally doesn't care whether one person is watching or an entire soccer stadium.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:00]
If they had Mozart today, they couldn't work with him, although he was a very adaptable man.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:21]
The one thing about program television that's absolutely incompatible with any concept of art is that all decisions have to be made by program directors, whereas art is autonomous. It may be dependent, but it knows no superiors.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:35]
When I think of the library of Alexandria and of the fact that, although it burnt down, people continue to sort the letters of the alphabet according to that tradition, then that makes certain expressions of modernity, even of interventions on the textual level, possible.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:49]
You cannot limit yourself to one area of specialized craft. Instead, regardless of craft, you have to charge all forms of expression that lead to the community, to other people, with meaning.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:55]
Edgar Reitz created a unique 26-hour film. He was like a cousin when I was working on cultivating those independent broadcasting times on RTL or Sat. We are both gardeners in the foreign soil of television. We are both incredibly suspicious of the medium of television.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:50]
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 [12/22/2011 01:12:00]
We are not just representing the cultural magazines here, but also an investigative journalistic position which is part of the classic public sphere.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:21]
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 [12/22/2011 01:12:33]
That's what we call thepublisher's principle: the idea that the press knows responsible authors who are accountable for what they write.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:43]
Ten years of watching TV have taught us that viewers are extremely sensitive to breaks. Anything that occurs outside the program and takes them by surprise will act as a zapper trap, meaning that they pause in their zapping, they wait, they pay attention.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:54]
You have to venture forward again and again, to get in the midst of what people are interested in. You have to seek out the remote and wild places for art to renew itself. We set out as filmmakers in the GDR imitating the French New Wave. We were two years late.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:05]
We all know the mechanical time of a television program, which is basically derived from peoples' working hours and the petty mercantile uses they make of their leisure time. For the Greeks, Chronos stood for time that leads to death, time that consumes itself.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:16]
If we were to talk about something like Noah's ark today, where the best qualities are preserved, it would not be one ship, but a multitude of small boats. The one-minute comets, soaring through the program, can interrupt it.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:45]
The reciprocal action of television and the Internet can lead to freedom of trade. For the first time the directorial principle of mainstream program television, where viewers sit in front of the screen like a school class, is being disrupted.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:06]
The digital channels reveal an immense contradiction within the economic powers that are now forming an alliance to set up a closed shop market. Once that changes-and they will make it change-they will be able to destroy the public TV stations too.More Alexandr Kluge [12/22/2011 01:12:08]
Similar to the telescope or the telephone, television enables us to see or hear things we never dreamed of. When you look at the details, a concrete scene between people is really something incredibly unlikely, something subtle that requires extended description.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:28]
We don't perceive a contradiction between writing books, making films or producing a television program. These days you can't choose how you want to express yourself anymore.More Alexandr Kluge [08/05/2011 12:08:44]
