Daney on the Staubs: En rachâchant, Class Relations

The Goethe Institute in London is organising a Huillet/Straub retrospective at the moment. Andy Rector and I seized the opportunity to translate a few texts by Daney.

The first two were published on the same day in Libération (3 October 1984): the account of an evening with 'the Straubs' who were presenting Class Relations at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the review of the film by Daney.
The Straubs 
First published in Libération on 3 October 1984. Reproduced in Ciné journal, 1981-86, Cahiers du cinéma, 1986, pp. 256-7.   
Franz Kafka, strauboscoped 
First published in Libération on 3 October 1984. 

And since the Goethe retrospective is showing Class Relations (Klassenverhältnisse) along with En rachâchant, we've added a short text by Daney on the latter. This programme is on tonight and on Wednesday.
Straub rachâche 
First published in Libération on 7 April 1983.

See you at some of the screenings.
