"Überwachungsnarrative im Dokumentarischen. Konstruierte Untergangsstimmung im deutschsprachigen Fernsehen."
The article examines which narratives underlie the statements on the topic of surveillance in documentary texts. I ask the question with which meanings surveillance is provided within our culture, how the experience of a multitude of surveillance occurrences is organized into understandable stories and which surveillance storyworld results from it. The texts construct the world as data world, the subject as data subject, via the narrative object of surveillance. They establish shadows as a collective symbol within the narrative of self-loss and focus on a future marked by a global totality of dataveillance. That’s how they state a crisis as a time of upheaval or transition.
