In conjunction with the exhibition Harun Farocki: Images of War (at a Distance), the artist’s first solo exhibition at a U.S. museum, Farocki presents a talk and screening. Farocki emerged as a filmmaker in Berlin during the international student protest movement, and over the past four decades he has transitioned from “guerrilla cinema” to essay films to video installations. Farocki’s practice is largely defined by an experimental documentary format integrating his own material with footage appropriated from various sources, including mass media, surveillance, and political propaganda. In analyzing the production and consumption of images, Farocki’s works confront relationships between technology, politics, and violence. Program 90 min.
