Cruel Narrations

with: Karen Mirza & Brad Butler, Klaus vom Bruch

This programme traces an arc from the socialist motivated terrorism of the 1970s to the terrorism of today.

The works focus not on violence as such, but on its reflection in mass media. The Schleyer Tape is based on what was the universal medium of the time — television— while The Unreliable Narrator reflects a wide variety of materials: from surveillance cameras and telephone taps to Bollywood films.
