Lachende Koerper - Komikerinnen im Kino der 1910er Jahre, Paperback / softback Book

Lachende Koerper - Komikerinnen im Kino der 1910er Jahre Paperback / softback


Claudia Preschl's study focusses on female performers in comedies between 1910 and 1918.

The book is a contribution to the rediscovery of this early "other" cinema in which comediennes such as "Rosalie", "Lea" or Asta Nielsen played a decisive part.

Lachende Koerper describes the variety of preposterous body-language and shows how anarchistic body-politics and rebellious strategies of Gender in Early Cinema can be decoded for today.
