In recent years, the artist Hito Steyerl has gained great international recognition for her work at the intersection between film and fine art. Her films combine elements of experimental film, auteur cinema, documentary film, and video art. This is the first monograph to examine Steyerl’s oeuvre in several facets, with contributions from film, art, and cultural historians. Numerous illustrations show the stylistically honed visual language in Steyerl’s work, which is schooled in discourse analysis. Through montage, she uses elements from popular culture and politics, Hollywood and independent cinema, interviews and off-commentary to assemble provocative film analyses of the present.

With a preface by Marius Babias and texts by T. J. Demos and Bert Rebhandl.
