Description: In this course, we will focus on recent developments in Austrian cinema. Not unlike other cinematic “new waves,” Austria’s artists politically and aesthetically resist the petit-bourgeois mindset of their fellow citizens. Considered within the national/European context of “official” Austria and its long avoidance of dealing with its fascist past, and within a global context of the post-modern “state of exception,” new Austrian film offers viewers a spectatorial position from which to consider the “society of control” (Foucault/Deleuze/Hardt). Beginning with the avant-garde works of VALIE EXPORT, this course will emphasize works by Barbara Albert, Florian Flicker, Michael Glawogger, Michael Haneke, Stefan Ruzowitzky, Ulrich Seidl, Peter Tscherkassky, and Valeska Grisebach.
