Deutsches Haus at NYU presents an evening of video snippets with the Berlin-based journalist, director, and actor Jürgen Kuttner, whose presentation will address the fragility of German identity. Kuttner presented his evenings of video snippets, first at the Volksbühne in Berlin and then at the Deutsches Theater for the past 20 years. Each evening of video snippets is different with an individual motto and theme, ranging from love, sex, war, kids, and cars to the democratizing potential of German Schlager, the political suitability of Central American hallucinogenic cacti, the aggression potential of the German Foreign Minister’s phone ringing, or the question of which presents would please the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. So far, Jürgen Kuttner has presented over 1000 absurd moments of international film and television culture to a diverse audience. As informative, bizarre, and entertaining as these clips are, their true impact becomes clear only through Jürgen Kuttner’s commentary.
