Norman Klein and Andreas Kratky

Norman Klein and Andreas Kratky: The Birth of New Media/Literary Form


CalArts President Steven D. Lavine hosts this series, which opens with a screening/presentation of Norman Klein's path-breaking DVD-ROM Bleeding Through: Layers of Los Angeles 1920-1986. An interactive crime novella that takes us deep into the territory of film noir and Los Angeles' lost past, Bleeding Through may well be the breakthrough into new media-enriched narrative that a generation of writers and media artists have sought. A faculty member at CalArts and author of The History of Forgetting: Los Angeles and the Erasure of Memory, Klein is joined by internationally acclaimed media designer Andreas Kratky in a dis-cussion of the emergence of a new literary form described in The Los Angeles Times as "overwhelming in its information, yet full of loss and silence."
