When the Dadaist Georg Grosz referred in his autobiography to the “real or fake” Kriegszitterer (literally, “war-tremblers”) that could be encountered on every street corner in post-World War I Berlin, he alluded to the problem of knowledge that these figures posed for contemporaries. This talk examines the efforts of German psychiatrists and neurologists to address this problem through the medium of cinematography. Register for the Workshop at Eventbrite.
