Wittgenstein in Coen Country :: Language Games in the Films of Joel and Ethan Coen :: Film Exploratorium ::
Taking their cue from Ludwig Wittgenstein, who, with his concept of language games situated philosophy on a new, language-critical foundation, the Coen Brothers have transferred these concepts to film aesthetics which they use consistently in their films. In accurately detailed recordings, they thus succeed in describing the American subcultures at various periods and different places. [Wed, Jan 15, 2014 | 6 p.m. | ZKM_Lecture Hall] ⁄⁄ more
