Karl Marx and Cinema
The delusion of the masses or a means of enlightenment par excellence? Since its beginnings, film has been the subject of ideological disputes and appropriations like hardly any other medium. Left-wing struggles and theories in particular play a specific role in this dispute about and in the cinema - be it as a consumable commodity in the cultural pessimistic reflections of the Frankfurt School or as a site of lively resistance in feminist and postcolonial appropriations.
The focus of the film series accompanying the exhibition Karl Marx and Capitalism is thus not Karl Marx as a historical figure, but the far-reaching cinematic receptions of his theoretical reflections.
