About us

We are the first review editorial team of the University of Kassel, which has one thing in common above all: We love reading books, watching series, and watching movies. But more importantly, we love writing about them.

What did we particularly like about the latest Netflix series? Which book could we not put down? What background or special features should you definitely know? Can we recommend the film to you or not?

We want to share all this and much more with you at MEDIEN|KRITIK. Whether oldies or new releases, thrillers or fantasy, absolute favorite books or never-ending hate movies, we set no limits and want to give you a diverse insight into the world of media we consume ourselves. And who knows, maybe we can even inspire you in this way or encourage you to think further.

Want to join us?

If you like it and you don't just want to read our reviews, but would rather write reviews yourself, you're super welcome to do so! You can always join our regular editorial meetings as a permanent member or send us your own reviews as a freelance writer to the email address below. We are looking forward to reading your texts and giving you editorial and conceptual advice.
