Sample text

The films I analyze invest the relationships between states, institutions, and economic entities with feelings and drives conceived as primordial and natural. They construct nation-states as “persons” involved in a family drama. Neferti Tadiar has dated the emergence of a material and metaphorical “sexual economy” structuring relations within the nascent Asia-Pacific region and between that region and the United States to the end of the cold war when international relations were marked by ideological antagonism.

Yet the Neuköllner Oper, which has enjoyed a long-term relationship with a corporate sponsor, is certainly no capitalist lackey, nor are the numerous theaters that now survive on mixed funding, which includes support by associations of private sponsors, so-called Freundeskreise. These associations that have traditionally had a strong presence in German civil society 26 Choreographing the Global occupy a “private” space that cannot simply be equated with corporate profit aims.
