Summary:Alexander Kluge sees himself as an author. He inspires his readers, listeners and viewers with his films, texts interviews and much more besides. On the occasion of his 85th birthday, Museum Folkwang is presenting an exhaustive exhibition destined to visualize the core of his multimedia oeuvre. Kluge forges links and then explores through them what makes human beings tick, how we are unique and stubborn, capable of judgement, to what extent history and stories are stored within us, what felt and what real options for action we have, and why our biographies are a currency. Alexander Kluge uses images, texts and objects to create ever new constellations, whose sense or nonsensicality is primarily the product of montage. Kluge allows our imagination to germinate in the interstices between the two poles. Central to him are the links between emotion and reason, and he is forever hunting down the theoretical in everyday life.
