NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF TELEVISION SERIES


Television may be passé and as a medium it may even have failed. But the format of the TV series and the related esthetic concepts that have been generated by television seem to have a brilliant future, also in the age of digital data transfer. Be it “House of Cards” (Netflix), “Transparent” (Amazon), “Better Call Saul” (AMC) or “Fargo” (FX) – in our “post-televisual” world of the present, series that, across all genre traditions still engender much of television, set the pace of the global culture of moving images. In almost all respects such as media technology, logic of consumption, esthetics as well as social diagnostics, the results are of outstanding explosiveness and present a challenge for the discourse of dramaturgy at the theater.

Under the title “Episode”, experts and theorists from the environment of the movie magazine “Cargo” each present one of these productions for discussion.
