Lachende Körper

Claudia Preschl
Komikerinnen im Kino der 1910er Jahre
Lachende Körper 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.

Claudia Preschl's study focusses on short comedies and comedy serials between 1910 and 1918 and is a contribution to the rediscovery of the early „other” cinema in which comediennes such "Rosalie", "Léa" or Asta Nielsen played a decisive part.
