The "public sphere" is a key concept in political discourse, designating a space for political action. But is this a single authoritative and universal space in which various positions compete for recognition, or does it consist of multiple local spaces spread over diverse collectivities? In Kluge and Negt's groundbreaking book they examine the material conditions of experience in an arena that had previously figured only as an abstract term: the media of mass and consumer culture. With a new, up-to-date introduction from Alexander Kluge

History and obstinacy by Oskar Negt( Book )

55 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in German and English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If Marx's opus Capital provided the foundational account of the forces of production in all of their objective, machine formats, what happens when the concepts of political economy are applied not to dead labor, but to its living counterpart, the human subject? The result is Alexander Kluge and Oskar Negt's History and Obstinacy, a groundbreaking archaeology of the labor power that has been cultivated in the human body over the last two thousand years. Supplementing classical political economy with the insights of fields ranging from psychoanalysis and phenomenology to evolutionary anthropology and systems theory, History and Obstinacy reaches down into the deepest strata of unconscious thought, genetic memory, and cellular life to examine the complex ecology of expropriation and resistance. First published in German 1981, and never before translated into English, this epochal collaboration between Kluge and Negt has now been edited, expanded, and updated by the authors in response to global developments of the last decade to create an entirely new analysis of the capitalism within us."--Publisher's description
Der Luftangriff auf Halberstadt am 8. April 1945 by Alexander Kluge( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 8, 1945, several American bomber squadrons were informed that their German targets were temporarily unavailable due to cloud cover. As it was too late to turn back, the assembled ordnance of more than two hundred bombers was diverted to nearby Halberstadt. A mid-sized cathedral town of no particular industrial or strategic importance, Halberstadt was almost totally destroyed, and a then-thirteen-year-old Alexander Kluge watched his town burn to the ground
Deutschland im Herbst = Germany in autumn by Alf Brustellin( Visual )

38 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An attempt to gauge the spirit of West Germany in the autumn of 1977. Draws its title and some of its inspiration from a satire written by Heinrich Heine in 1844 attacking the monarchy, German philistinism and politics and the tendency of the fragmented German peoples to revere the Middle Ages. This compilation, supervised by Kluge, of the work of twelve filmmakers in sixteen segments, is similarly wide ranging in its attack and incorporates both staged and found material

30 April 1945 : the day Hitler shot himself and Germany's integration with the West began by Alexander Kluge( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was on April 30, 1945 that the Red Army occupied Berlin, Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker and the United Nations was being founded in San Francisco. Alexander Kluge covers this single historic day and unravels its passing hours across the different theatres of the Second World War, including the life of a small German town occupied by American forces and the story of two SS officers stranded on the forsaken Kerguelen Islands. The collective experiences Kluge paints here are jarring, poignant and imbued with meaning

30. April 1945 : der Tag, an dem Hitler sich erschoss und die Westbindung der Deutschen begann by Alexander Kluge( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der 30. April 1945, ein Montag, letzter ausgeübter Werktag des Deutschen Reiches. Ihm folgen ein Feiertag und der Übergang von Resten einer Staatsgewalt in Hände, die das einwöchige Niemandsland bis zur Kapitulation nicht mehr steuern. Es ist ein Tag voller Widersprüche und verwirrender Lebensgeschichten. In Berlins Mitte toben heftige Gefechte, die Rote Armee nimmt die Stadt in Besitz, Hitler erschießt sich. Scheinbare Idylle dagegen in der Schweiz. In San Francisco formieren sich die Vereinten Nationen. Alexander Kluge beschreibt in seinem Buch lokale und globale Verhältnisse. Es geht um das Leben in einer kleinen, von amerikanischen Streitkräften schon besetzten Stadt, um den Takt der Haarschnitte, aber auch um Ereignisse rund um den Erdball, darunter die Geschichte zweier SS-Männer auf einer Kerguelen-Insel. Die Frage, die sich überall und unwiderruflich stellt: Wie soll man auf den Umsturz der Verhältnisse angemessen reagieren? Martin Heidegger etwa, in der Abgeschiedenheit von Burg Wildenstein, greift auf Hölderlin zurück ... Die Erfahrungen aller Lebensgeschichten, die vom 30. April 1945 ausgehen, reichen bis zu uns: In ihnen spiegelt sich, 69 Jahre danach, bereits auch die Gegenwart
Harlan : in the shadow of Jew Süss( Visual )

3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though almost forgotten today, Veit Harlan was one of Nazi Germany's most notorious filmmakers. Millions across occupied Europe saw his films, the most infamous of which was the horrific anti-Semitic propaganda film Jew Suss, which was required viewing for all SS members. Harlan was also the only artist from the Nazi era to be charged with war crimes. Included are never-before-seen archival footage, unearthed film excerpts, rare home movies, and new interviews
The devil's blind spot : tales from the new century by Alexander Kluge( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 173 stories collected in Alexander Kluge's The Devil's Blind Spot range from a dozen pages to just half a page in length: these tales, like novels in pill form, are arranged in five chapters. The first group illustrates the little-known virtues of the Devil; the second explores love (from Kant to the opera); the third (entitled "Sarajevo Is Everywhere") addresses power; the fourth considers the cosmos; and the fifth ranges all our "knowledge" against our feelings."--Jacket
Kongs grosse Stunde : Chronik des Zusammenhangs by Alexander Kluge( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der große Menschenaffe verteidigt das ihm Liebste gegen eine Welt von Teufeln. Wer und was aber ist dieses offenbar undomestizierbare Tier? Liegt es vielleicht in uns selbst? Öffnet sich hier ein Boden, auf dem wir uns zu selbstsicher bewegen? Für Alexander Kluge stellt sich damit erneut die Frage nach erschließbaren Räumen in uns Menschen und in unserer Millionen Jahre alten Vergangenheit. Diesen Raum durchmisst er in 13 Stationen unter wechselnden Perspektiven, doch immer in konkreten Geschichten. So geht es um "Reparaturerfahrung" als essenzielle Lebenspraxis ebenso wie um die genealogische Erinnerung an Vater und Mutter. Zu einer Chronik des Zusammenhangs gehören aber nicht nur Personen, sondern auch Dinge mitsamt der in ihnen aufbewahrten menschlichen Arbeit. Sind solche Dinge nicht selbst oft "verzauberte Menschen" und bergen Romane? Schließlich die Kunst als "große Oper" im Leben und auf der Bühne. Sie bietet die direkteste Darstellung von Leidenschaft mit ihren elementaren Wurzeln in der Realität: im Terror, im Glück und in stillgestellten Bürgerkriegen des Gefühls aus ältester Zeit. Gute Theorie in konkrete Geschichten aufzulösen, das ist Alexander Kluges lebenslänglicher Ansatz. In der Konsistenz von Gedanken liegt für ihn Musik, und so setzt er mit diesem Buch gegen die vor 15 Jahren erschienene Chronik der Gefühle nun den Kontrapunkt einer Chronik des Zusammenhangs

"Wer ein Wort des Trostes spricht, ist ein Verräter" : 48 Geschichten für Fritz Bauer by Alexander Kluge( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Dritten Reich spielt in Alexander Kluges Werk eine wichtige Rolle. Die Judenvernichtung bildet dabei ein gravitatives Zentrum. Die Schwierigkeit, den Holocaust mit den Mitteln der Kunst zu erfassen, liegt aber darin, dass die klassische literarische Form, wie Adorno festgestellt hat, bei Auschwitz nicht greift. Umso wichtiger, dass man die Erfahrung der eigenen Zeit, der Jetzt-Zeit, immer wieder in diesen geschichtlichen Absturz hineinhält, sie darin "eicht". Dauerhaft und beharrlich gilt es weiterzuerzählen: vom Versagen der Eliten, von der Rasanz eines behördlich organisierten bösen Willens, von der extremen Seltenheit der Rettung. "Wer ein Wort des Trostes spricht, ist ein Verräter" ist ein Buch über bittere Schicksale, bekannte und unbekannte, aber vor allem auch über Organisationsformen, die Menschen vernichten. Gewidmet sind die 48 Geschichten dem entschlossenen Kämpfer für Gerechtigkeit, Fritz Bauer, Generalstaatsanwalt des Landes Hessen während der Auschwitzprozesse
