Make your own 'Hitler finds out...' parody video

"You've probably seen your share of 'Hitler finds out...' and 'Hitler reacts to...' videos that take the famous scene from the 2004 movie Downfall (Der Untergang) and add funny subtitles misrepresenting the reason for Hitler's rage... This website lets you create such videos easily. All you need to do is come up with the captions. We'll make the video for you and upload it straight to your YouTube account."

(Jacek Fedorynski)

Paris streets as crime-scene evidence

"Eugene Atget, who, around 1900, took photographs of deserted Paris streets. It has quite justly been said of him that he photographed them like scenes of crime. The scene of a crime, too, is deserted; it is photographed for the purpose of establishing evidence. With Atget, photographs become standard evidence for historical occurrences, and acquire a hidden political significance. They demand a specific kind of approach; free–floating contemplation is not appropriate to them. They stir the viewer; he feels challenged by them in a new way. At the same time picture magazines begin to put up signposts for him, right ones or wrong ones, no matter. For the first time, captions have become obligatory. And it is clear that they have an altogether different character than the title of a painting. The directives which the captions give to those looking at pictures in illustrated magazines soon become even more explicit and more imperative in the film where the meaning of each single picture appears to be prescribed by the sequence of all preceding ones."
