Alexander Kluge (born 1932) has long been known as an engaged poet, polyphonic chronologist, and seismographer of the present. Using images, texts, and objects, the author and filmmaker creates ever new constellations, the meanings of which are mainly derived from the nature of their arrangement. Kluge has won a number of awards for his interdisciplinary works. In 2017, he was awarded the Jean-Paul Prize for his lifetime literary achievements.
