Sample text

Müller’s effort to increase the aesthetic transparency of his film is anathema to Riefenstahl’s style. One of the reasons why Riefenstahl later disavowed and actually sought to “erase” from memory the making of her first Nazi propaganda film Victory of Faith from 1933 was precisely the rough or unrefined quality of the film, where power cables are visible and people stumble into position right in front of the camera. By contrast, Soviet filmmakers like Dziga Vertov and Sergei Eisenstein, much like Müller himself, reveled in this deliberate deconstruction of their own movies.

25 To do so, we need a fresh look at Riefenstahl’s work from today’s perspective, one that recognizes Riefenstahl’s symptomatic character for the problematic of art, ethics, and politics and thus uncouples the discussion from biographical and moral issues. We might begin by recognizing the fact that the aesthetics of montage has lost its ethico-political edge today.

In the context of Riefenstahl, at least, there is nothing to be gained anymore from rehearsing the same old debate about her personal guilt or innocence visà-vis the horrors of German fascism, about whether her works are “art” or “propaganda,” about her alleged use of concentration camp victims in Tiefland (1945; 1954; Lowlands), for example. The point is not to deny that these are meaningful and important questions. 25 To do so, we need a fresh look at Riefenstahl’s work from today’s perspective, one that recognizes Riefenstahl’s symptomatic character for the problematic of art, ethics, and politics and thus uncouples the discussion from biographical and moral issues.
