Some notes on the ‘Baader-Meinhof Complex’

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This film review essay offers some reflections on the contemporary receptions of left-wing armed struggle politics as represented in the film Baader Meinhof Complex, directed by Uli Edel and based on a book by Stefan Aust. It argues for a political understanding of the actions of the RAF or similar ‘terrorist' cells. From such a perspective, the anti-imperialist ideology of armed struggles can be subjected to criticism.
