Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: sehr gut, Universitat zu Koln (Theater-, Film- und Fernsehwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Oberseminar "Kunstlerpaare," Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Die Arbeit behandelt das gemeinsame "Offentliche Wirken" eines Paares John Lennon und Yoko Ono als Kunstler unterschiedlicher Bereiche und geographischer Herkunft unter besonderer Berucksichtigung filmischer Projekte sowie durchgangig mit Blick auf Gender-Aspekte., Abstract: Dass John Lennon und Yoko Ono in einer potentiellen Liste, beruhmte Paare des 20. Jahrhunderts" zu nennen seien, ist mit einiger Wahrscheinlichkeit anzunehmen. Dafur, dass Lennon und Ono anlasslich eines Referates und der sich anschliessenden Hausarbeit fur ein Oberseminar, Kunstlerpaare" innerhalb der Theater-, Film- und Fernsehwissenschaft zu behandeln seien, sprachen zwei Aspekte: Zum einen ist Yoko Ono, zusammen mit ihrem Partner, in einer zentralen Phase ihres kunstlerischen Schaffens als Filmemacherin in Erscheinung getreten. Dies bedarf der Erlauterung, denn die Filme sind der Offentlichkeit wenig bekannt bzw. in Vergessenheit geraten. Sie sind Ende der 60er, Anfang der 70er Jahre, in Kunstmuseen und auf Festivals gezeigt worden und fallen -experimenteller Natur- stark in der Popularitat gegenuber ihrem popmusikalischen Wirken oder aufsehenerregenden, Bed-In"-Aktionen ab. Gleichwohl besitzen sie innerhalb kunstlerischen Schaffens als z.T. eigenstandige und z.T. Vorgenanntes begleitende Ausserungen einen Wert im Rahmen eines Gesamtwerkes formell gleichsetzbar dem filmischen Wirken eines Warhol oder Cocteau, denen cineastische Beachtung zuteil wurde. Gegenwartig, da Yoko Onos Kunst eine Neu-Entdeckung und -Bewertung erfahrt, kommt es, seit Mitte der 90er Jahre, in Programmkinos zu einer Neu- (bzw. Erst-)Rezeption der Filme. In diesem Zusammenhang sei auch auf die Verknupfung von Bed-In"-Aktion und Dokumentation (in Teil 5, Politisierung) hingewiesen. Zum anderen is

John Lennon revolutionierte mit seinen Liedern nicht nur die Musik, sondern leistete auch einen grossen Beitrag zur Friedensbewegung. Noch heute, fast 30 Jahre nach seinem tragischen Tod, haben sein Werk und sein Leben nichts von ihrer Faszination verloren. In seiner Biographie versucht Nicola Bardola das Phanomen John Lennon zu ergrunden und die komplexe Personlichkeit des begnadeten Musikers aufzudecken. Dazu hat er viele Gesprache gefuhrt, unter anderem mit John Lennons erster Frau Cynthia und Klaus Voormann, einem engen Freund des Beatles. Intensiv beschaftigt sich Bardola auch mit Lennons genialen Liedern. Es sind Kompositionen, die die Welt beruhren. Der Song "Imagine" ist sogar zu einer Hymne der Friedensbewegung geworden. Viele teilen den Wunschtraum eines friedlichen Zusammenlebens, der darin besungen wird. Nicht umsonst evoziert in manchen Kopfen allein schon das Wort "Imagine" die eingangige Melodie. John Lennon hat auf den unterschiedlichsten Wegen versucht, die Menschheit dazu zu bewegen, seine Visionen zu verwirklichen: musikalisch, literarisch und politisch, durch Charme, Witz und Provokation.

This book sets out to explore a dark tourisma ; that is, the representation of inhuman acts, and how these are interpreted for visitors at a number of places throughout the world, for example the sites of concentration camps in both Western and Eastern Europe. Many people wish to experience the reality behind the media images, or are prompted to find out more by a personal association with places or events. The phenomenon raises ethical issues over the status and nature of objects, the extent of their interpretation, the appropriate political and managerial response and the nature of the experience as perceived by the visitor, their residents and local residents. Events, sites, types of visit and a hosta reactions are considered in order to construct the parameters of the concept of a dark tourisma . Many acts of inhumanity are celebrated as heritage sites in Britain (for example, the Tower of London, Edinburgh Castle), and the Berlin Wall has become a significant attraction despite claiming many victims.

Lennon’s career from the 1960s until his tragic death in 1980, and even beyond, demonstrates how different expectations articulated by the star, the music industry, the media, and the fans form relations which change in terms of time and place. Using a multidisciplinary approach and intriguing case studies, this book also examines cultural identity, authenticity, and gender in popular music stardom.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation began to watch ex-Beatle John Lennon closely, soon after he and his wife, Yoko Ono, arrived in New York in 1971, as Nixon's aides feared that Lennon might use his fame to mobilize American youth to vote against the president. In 1972 Lennon was ordered to leave America - partly due to a 1968 conviction for possession of marijuana - and he was not granted permanent residence until July 1976. This book contains the FBI files on John Lennon reproduced in facsimile, providing an insight into Lennon's political activities at the time of Nixon's re-election campaign and his struggle to get permanent residence. Handwritten comments and an indication of the extent of censored passages are included.
