A Video Collection of Hojda Stojka, Son of Artist and Survivor of the Porajmos Ceija Stojka <p>This paper investigates home videos made by Hojda Stojka, the son of Ceija Stojka (1933-2013), artist and survivor of Auschwitz, Ravensbrück, and Bergen-Belsen. Based on a close reading of significant video sequences, a narrative interview with the videographer, and Ceija Stojka’s publications and films, it analyses how the auto/biographical videos relate to the persecution of the parents’ generation. The paper focuses on the importance of spaces like kitchens, cars and stages, on the value assigned to auto/biographical audiovisual recordings, and the recontextualization and integration of photographs and television recordings into the family memory.</p> Renée Winter Copyright (c) 2023 Studia austriaca 2023-06-17 2023-06-17 31 5 27 10.54103/1593-2508/20323 Eine «einzige große Verzögerung». Die Exilliteratur Maria Lazars und ihre Rezeption <p>The Austrian novelist, essayist and journalist Maria Lazar (1895-1948), only recently rediscovered, who was a contemporary of Thomas Mann and an acquaintance of Bertolt Brecht, wrote many different types of texts. Considered a promising talent back in Vienna, the reception of her works decreased during Lazar’s years in exile. The following contribution aims to reconstruct the dynamics of her marginalization and takes a closer look at the socially critical dimension of <em>No Right to Live</em> and <em>Die Eingeborenen von Maria Blut</em> [<em>The Natives of Maria Blood</em>].</p> Simone Ketterl Copyright (c) 2023 Studia austriaca 2023-06-17 2023-06-17 31 29 49 10.54103/1593-2508/20324 «Die Schutzbefohlenen» von Elfriede Jelinek als Frage nach dem Recht auf Fragen <p>Elfriede Jelinek’s <em>Die Schutzbefohlenen</em> [<em>Charges (The Supplicants)</em>] shows how the fact that those without (acknowledged) rights speak, even though their language is not the language acknowledged by those who are privileged, nonetheless gives them <em>a right to have rights</em>. As a consequence, the privilege is to be doubted, according to which rights would not be universal. This will be explored in the following.</p> Martin A.

The Prefigurative Role of the French Revolution in Victor Hugo’s introduction to «Paris guide» (1867) and Robert Hamerling’s «Danton und Robespierre» (1871) <p>This article analyses the ways in which fraternity is imagined in Victor Hugo’s introductory essay to <em>Paris guide</em> (1867) and <em>Danton und Robespierre</em> (1871), by the Austrian poet Robert Hamerling. Both texts use the French Revolution as a pretext to articulate a cosmopolitan vision that has to be understood as a reaction to the political tensions in the prelude to and aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71). By reconstructing how Hugo and Hamerling intervene in a broader debate on the question of nationalism and internationalism, this article sheds more light on how literature was a vehicle for cosmopolitan views.</p> Michiel Rys Copyright (c) 2023 Studia austriaca 2023-06-17 2023-06-17 31 75 95 10.54103/1593-2508/20327 Kolonialismus, Regression und Sinnlichkeit in Robert Menasses «Sinnliche Gewissheit» <p>Even though Robert Menasse claims, through the words of his <em>alter ego</em> Roman Gilanian, the protagonist of <em>Sinnliche Gewissheit</em> [<em>Sensual Certainty</em>], that he does not know what to say about the Brazilians, this novel displays a certain portrait of Brazil. As a land of blatant social injustice, of sensuality, hedonism and irrationality, Brazil is at the same time fascinating and repulsive for a novelist who sees it through European eyes. For Menasse, Brazil remains foreign and mysterious, a land full of contradictions and paradoxes that seem to pose a threat to his philosophical concepts. This article highlights three themes that play a key role in the plot of <em>Sinnliche Gewissheit</em>: colonialism, regression and sensuality which, at the same time, challenge the idea of <em>Heimat</em>.</p> Luis S.
