Updates on Issue 4 and contributions for 18/19


Dear friends,

We are delighted to announce a new section – SOURCES, which launched in May 2017. The section contains filmographies, bibliographies and other source materials.

Issue 4 (published in June 2017) covers a range of topics. It contains articles on the reception and censorship of early cinema in Russia/the USSR, and essays on recent Polish, Romanian and Russian film productions addressing questions of authenticity in cinema. For the first time in Apparatus, we publish an interview, with Russian filmmaker and scriptwriter Natalia Meshchaninova who also made the photo on our home page:


We currently welcome contributions for issues to be published in 2018/19. We would appreciate if you could submit an abstract beforehand.

Your Apparatus team: Natascha Drubek, Irina Schulzki, Adelheid Heftberger, Mario Slugan, John Leman Riley, Maria Oprea, Alisa Rethy, and Theo Kraus
