Lorenz Hegel

Lorenz Hegel's picture

Before joining the German Department and Film and Media Studies Program in 2017, Lorenz studied philosophy and literature in Hildesheim, Paris, and Berlin. His main interests include post-Kantian philosophy and ‘anti-philosophy’ (Marx, Nietzsche, Freud), as well as their reverberation in French-German twentieth-century thought. Lorenz is currently working on the interrelation of images, bodies, and ideology within the framework of Western materialism and Marxism, with a specific focus on the aesthetics and politics of early film movements and their impact on global counter-cinema.
