Julian Rosefeldt American Night

Julian Rosefeldt is one of the most powerful artists working at the intersection of narrative film and complex filmic installation. Since the late 1990s, his suggestive imageryclearly hinting at the baroque tradition of ‘theatrum mundi’is dealing with the cinematographic play of appearance and reality and a life in continuous repetition. This book is based on Julian Rosefeldts opulent 5-channel-film-installation ’American Night’ (2009), in which he reflects on America’s foundation myth with its current hegemonic foreign policies through the genre of the Western and its central motifs. At the same time he exposes the cinematographic logic of the scenes and allows for a view on the set and an insight into the production process.
