The Thomas Elsaesser Collection, hosted at the DFF, is an ongoing project that goes back to the original vision he had in 1976 of creating an “assemblage of materials.” This website presents a variety of published and unpublished works by film scholar Thomas Elsaesser (1943–2019). It will continually evolve to include new materials based on research into his visual and discursive practice, engaging with the past, present, and the future of image cultures.
