Abstract (English)

Douglas' film installations and videos are assessed by Watson in terms of Adorno's aesthetic theory; the artist's preoccupation with the mechanisms of representation is outlined, as well as parallels with the work of Samuel Beckett. Fiske contextualizes the work in the television and market conditions of late capitalism, relating it to advertizing and popular culture. Includes documentation in the form of scripts, scenarios, location shots and stills. Biographical notes. 11 bibl. ref.
