The sense of an ending: 1991–96
in Jean-Luc Godard
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

In the 1990s, Jean-Luc Godard's work was marked by a distinct turn towards the past, by a new concern for history. The hypothesis of the end of history has been most famously asserted in recent times by Francis Fukuyama. Godard's Allemagne neuf zéro can be seen as a response to the kind of triumphalism surrounding the reunification of Berlin and the victory of western capitalist democracy. JLG/JLG: Autoportrait de décembre presents an image of Godard at a moment in time, engaging in such typical activities as working on films and walking by the lake. In Hélas pour moi, Godard aims to give his story a completely different status to the kind of information that is easily assimilated but quickly forgotten in the contemporary sphere of audiovisual media.
