9780415709279: German Cinema - Terror and Trauma: Cultural Memory Since 1945

In German Cinema – Terror and Trauma Since 1945, Thomas Elsaesser reevaluates the meaning of the Holocaust for postwar German films and culture, while offering a reconsideration of trauma theory today. Elsaesser argues that Germany's attempts at "mastering the past" can be seen as both a failure and an achievement, making it appropriate to speak of an ongoing 'guilt management' that includes not only Germany, but Europe as a whole. In a series of case studies, which consider the work of Konrad Wolf, Alexander Kluge, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Herbert Achterbusch and Harun Farocki, as well as films made in the new century, Elsaesser tracks the different ways the Holocaust is present in German cinema from the 1950s onwards, even when it is absent, or referenced in oblique and hyperbolic ways. Its most emphatically "absent presence" might turn out to be the compulsive afterlife of the Red Army Faction, whose acts of terror in the 1970s were a response to―as well as a reminder of―Nazism’s hold on the national imaginary. Since the end of the Cold War and 9/11, the terms of the debate around terror and trauma have shifted also in Germany, where generational memory now distributes the roles of historical agency and accountability differently. Against the background of universalized victimhood, a cinema of commemoration has, if anything, confirmed the violence that the past continues to exert on the present, in the form of missed encounters, retroactive incidents, unintended slippages and uncanny parallels, which Elsaesser―reviving the full meaning of Freud’s Fehlleistung―calls the parapractic performativity of cultural memory.

About the Author:

Thomas Elsaesser is Professor Emeritus of Film and Television Studies at the University of Amsterdam and since 2006 Visiting Professor at Yale University. His recent books include: Weimar Cinema and After (Routledge 2000); Metropolis (BFI 2000); Studying Contemporary American Film (Hodder 2002, with Warren Buckland); European Cinema: Face to Face with Hollywood (Amsterdam University Press 2005); Film Theory: An Introduction Through the Senses (Routledge 2010, with Malte Hagener); and The Persistence of Hollywood (Routledge 2012).

Review:

"For the past thirty years or so, Thomas Elsaesser has been one of the most astute critics of European cinema and one of the foremost theorists of cinema in general. German Cinema – Terror and Trauma is a thorough analysis of how trauma, the Holocaust, memory, and guilt have continually affected German filmmakers and the lives of Germans up to the present. I am convinced that Elsaesser's work will be of utmost importance to anyone, student or general reader, who is interested in German post-war history and cinema." ―Jack Zipes, Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota
