Content

There is no all-clear signal. Experts, sensation-seekers and participants stare aghast at the catastrophe. And wonder: ‘Have we survived?’ Dangerous security gaps, spectacular rescues and exclusive reporting are all too familiar from Hollywood movies – and the evening news. The permanent climate, health and financial disasters resemble scenes from a catastrophe screenplay. Kathrin Röggla unmasks the deceptive images and seductive stories of our alarmed society.
