Cíle předmětu
The three double-lectures deal with three periods:
1. "antifascist order", late Stalinism and muted destalinisation (until the erection of the wall)
2. the reform era until Ulbrichts demotion (61-71, also the most creative and turbulent phase in terms of GDR film history)
3. "real existing socialism" and dissolution of the GDR (71-89, more or less corresponding to the 'normalization' period in the CSSR).
A representative film for each of these periods to be screened Wednesday evening.
The structure of the double lectures:
- Introduction into the period in question: basic outlines in terms of political, social, cultural history, state of research, with a particular emphasis on media, public spheres, propaganda
- cinema policy of the SED, the film industry, the film profession, conflicts on censorship
- an overview of DEFA production with regard to quantity and quality, in relation to international trends
- an exemplary focus on one typical production and its political, cultural etc. context, its resonance with the GDR and international public.
At the end of the course students will:
- be able to interpret the period cinema production in the context of the cultural politics;
- understand better the possibilities of research in relation between cinema and politics;
- acquire a deeper knowledge of the cinema in GDR;
- be able to compare the GDR cinema with the development in Czechoslovakian cinema between 1945 and 1989.
