Die Stadt ohne Juden / The City Without Jews
»Greatest Hits« / Festival for Contemporary Music
»Intoxication« is the theme of this year’s »Greatest Hits«, the Festival of Contemporary Music at the Elbphilharmonie and Kampnagel. In a sobering demonstration of how ecstatic frenzy can also manifest in the form of a mass movement, the opening evening features the sensational rediscovery of Hans Karl Breslauer’s 1924 silent film »Die Stadt ohne Juden« (The City Without Jews). The film is set in the fictitious state of Utopia, where Jews are blamed for the country’s economic plight. Breslauer’s film was the first to take up the subject of anti-Semitism, which was rampant at the time, explicitly and to translate it into a satirical dystopia.
