By interrelating several texts on the editing and juxtaposition of heterogeneous images by the German essayist and media theorist Hans Magnus Enzensberger, this article brings up to date an aesthetic link between various past and contemporary media devices. The identification of this link makes it possible to free theoretical critique of the evolutionary paradigm of failure and progress (technological and political), opening it up to a set of reciprocal and non-linear insights. In this context, the use of Enzensberger texts also goes beyond any form of periodisation. By engaging a dialogue with his “Jeu de construction pour une théorie des medias” / Constituents of a Theory of the Media (1970), several essays gathered in Médiocrité et folie / Mediocrity and Madness (1988), as well as his recent autobiographical interview Erinnerungen an einen Tumult (2014), this text shows how criticism by the German writer, while constantly revitalised by the emergence of “new” objects (tabloid press, mobile video, television, Internet, smartphones), invites us to overcome any technological determinism to simultaneously consider the political potential of the first activist video groups and platforms dominating the Internet today.

The documentaries of Werner Herzog and Alexander Kluge, especially in the space they leave for the spectator, demonstrate how much their approaches and conceptions of film are divergent and irreconcilable. Nevertheless, the art of both these authors have something in common that has rarely been examined by analysts who have dedicated their work to both filmmakers. More than radical subjectivity (Herzog) or the aim of a visual reorganization of the subjective perception of the spectator (Kluge), a complex figure, and its perception by the spectator, are at the roots of their documentary practice. We call this figure the cinéaste. [less ▲]

On the 5th of September 1977, Hanns Martin Schleyer, head of the German Confederation of Employer’s Associations and former SS member was kidnapped by the Red Army Fraction. This kidnapping was the point of departure for what is usually referred to as the "German Autumn". Since 1977, this important episode in German contemporary history has become the main subject of many audiovisual treatments that attest to the progressive reduction and transformation of an event into some rare symbolic images. This article intends to reflect on the role played by one of these images: a photograph of the kidnapping scene of Hanns Martin Schleyer. This is a striking picture since no dead body is shown, emphasizing that this episode was a (non)event that the media can only document after the fact. Animated by a « dynamic of visual frustration », this image has activated a vast system of semantic filling and reinvestment in which the news, documentary cinema, video art, and the representations produced by the terrorists have become inextricably entangled.
