Example text

But do you think that the September 11 attacks remove power from the content of the Baader-Meinhof work? Martin Jay Well, I don’t know if we yet really know what September 11 means. The meaning is still exfoliating in very different ways. Probably there will be another September 11, another mega-event, another terrorist act, with nuclear, biological or chemical weapons, the probability is very high at least. We know of course, what happened in Spain, England and other places, but not on such a scale.

However, what we also have is a new crisis of the allegorical moment. I mean, as long as there is this balance between documentation of the events and the allegorical elevation of them. Thus, all those historic coronations, battle scenes and surrenders had powerful allegorical moments of meaning. In modern documentation the meaning is much less obvious, if it even exists at all. The meaning at times is very much in dispute. A recent example of this was the tapes of Rodney King, the beating of the black victim by the Los Angeles police officers in 1991: a real event, Rodney King being attacked by the law.

I mean, as long as there is this balance between documentation of the events and the allegorical elevation of them.
