Previously at the ICA - Events
11 Nov 2008
Rooted in the German student movement of the late 1960s, the Baader Meinhof group or the Red Army Faction turned to terrorism in the early 70s to fight against perceived imperialism and the lingering spectre of the Nazis. Stefan Aust, former editor of Der Spiegel and one of Germany's most respected journalists, co-wrote the controversial new film The Baader Meinhof Complex and the book of the same name. He comes to the ICA to talk about the enduring significance of Baader Meinhof, and our continued fascination with their campaign. Aust will be in conversation with Neal Ascherson, former Central European correspondent for The Observer and the author of Black Sea.
