The Red Army Faction and West Germany’s Debate Over Democracy and Authority
August 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Screening the Red Army Faction explores representations of the Red Army Faction (RAF) in print media, film and art. The book contributes both a new history and a new cultural history of post-fascist era West Germany that grapples with the fledgling republic’s most pivotal debates about the nature of democracy and authority; about violence, its motivations and regulation; and about its cultural afterlife.
