A brilliantly unconventional investigation into the career of a 
visionary German filmmaker and the untimely death of art cinema.

ULRIKE OTTINGER: The Autobiography of Art Cinema
Laurence A. Rickels
University of Minnesota Press | 232 pages | 2008
ISBN 978-0-8166-5330-0 | hardcover | $66.00
ISBN 978-0-8166-5331-7 | paperback | $22.00

Laurence A. Rickels offers analyses of Ulrike Ottinger's films, as 
well as her photographic artworks, situated within a dazzling thought 
experiment centered on the history of art cinema. In addition to 
commemorating the death of a once-vital art form, this book also 
affirms Ottinger's defiantly optimistic turn toward the documentary 
film as a means of mediating present clashes between tradition and 
modernity, between the local and the global.

Laurence A. Rickels is professor of German and comparative 
literature, as well as adjunct professor in the departments of art 
and film and media studies, at the University of California, Santa 
Barbara. He is also Sigmund Freud Professor of Media and Philosophy 
at the European Graduate School in Saas Fee, Switzerland. His writing 
is renowned for its stylistic experimentation, and as a theorist he 
takes seriously the task of finding form for thought.
