Alexander Kluge

Alexander Kluge

Alexander Kluge, born in Germany in 1932, is a world-famous author and filmmaker, a lawyer, and a social critic. He has won German’s highest literary award, the George Büchner Prize in addition to his four gold lions from the Venice Film Festival. Kluge is one of the leading intellectual voices in Germany today. Described, as a young man, as “Adorno’s favorite son”, over the past half century Kluge has created a vast body of work that can be regarded as a continuation, in word and image, of the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School.
