Abstract

This essay investigates contested notions of "German" and "foreigner" in a selection of four verbal or visual texts that appeared in the FRG in the 1980s and 1990s. Irene Dische's short story "The Jewess," Aras Ören's novella Bitte nix Polizei, Hark Bohm's film Yasemin, and Doris Dörrie's film Keiner liebt mich expose the erotic and often violent dimensions of notions about alterity, identity and integration. Their different constellations of outsider, insider, and blended figures show that as the "foreigner" becomes more "German," the traditional German figures become outsiders.
