Democracy, states Claude Lefort, is distinguished by a fundamental representation problem: unlike in the case of a monarchy, there is no longer any sovereign body through which the state is able to uniformly manifest itself. In Hollywood cinema, the “empty space” at the core of democracy thus disclosed is filled with mythical ‘primal scene’ that conceive of political representation – in the precise sense described by Thomas Hobbes – as a spontaneous theatrical performance: the persuasive power of a political speech fashions an individual, for as long as that person is performing, into the representative of all those present, with the latter becoming the audience and hence a representation of the people. This myth of a social order occurring at the moment of spontaneous performativity is also the identifying feature of filmic depictions of parliament, election rallies, and other political arenas, which Hollywood movies portray as places in which the shaping of democratic principles is a process being permanently re-enacted. Yet the films are characterized not by this legitimization of the democratic system alone, each of them also consistently pursuing an investigative act of enlightenment, revealing to us what is going on behind the scenes of the performance. By means of a comparative analysis of individual scenes from works by Frank Capra, Otto Preminger, John Frankenheimer, and George Clooney, the essay examines how the stage-like nature of political action takes on additional complexity through these explorations of the backstage. Similarly, the influence of filmic media on politics, as evidenced by the production of ever-new front- and side-stages (Meyrowitz), is an aspect being considered by these works in increasingly autoreflexive manner. Far from creating monodimensional ideologies, Hollywood thus seeks, through a highly differentiated approach, to get to grips with the mechanisms and aporias of modern-day politics, one which, in the actual essay itself, assumes the form of a filmic outline of the intellectual history of democratic representation.

The article analyses the composition of colour in the mise-en-scène of the zombie-movies REC, 28 Days Later and World War Z via a computer based approach. It first evaluates some of the methodological problems of common colour-quantisation by using clustering-algorithms in the context of film studies, then a new developed process is presented which builds on the theory of colour contrasts by Johannes Itten. A simple statistical analysis of two contrast ratios for each of the movies demonstrates that this approach is capable of providing detailed insights into the composition of colour in movies in general. Furthermore, the analysis of the three movies reveals that the accentuation of colour contrast relations serves different functions: colours can support the narrative structure of the movie, emphasize repeating motifs or establish an autonomous aesthetic space.

Die Konjunktur des Politischen in neueren Kinofilmen und Fernsehserien ist mit tradierten Oppositionen – wie der von Inhalt und Form – nicht mehr zu beschreiben. Vielmehr lässt sich konstatieren, dass Theorie und Praxis des Politischen längst mit filmischen Fiktionen verflochten sind: Diese vermitteln zwischen universalen und partikularen Perspektiven, entwerfen Figurentypen und Verhaltensmuster und intervenieren in aktuelle Diskurse. Ein neuer »medialer Realismus«, der diese Unhintergehbarkeit der Medien selbst sichtbar macht, bildet den thematischen Horizont der Beiträge dieses Sammelbands. Unter den Aspekten des Affizierens, Modellierens und Tradierens werden die theoretischen und ästhetischen Neuansätze des aktuellen politischen Kinos anhand einschlägiger Beispiele diskutiert.
