Harun Farocki: Forms of Intelligence between Text and Image
Harun Farocki is best known in contemporary art, film, and media studies as a celebrated international artist. His wide-ranging oeuvre spans from 1960s agit-prop cinema to 1970s and ’80s West German television to media installations created from the mid-1990s to 2014. Less well known, however, is that Farocki was a critic before he became a filmmaker. In this talk, Nora Alter takes a close look at Farocki’s early writings and places them alongside his moving-image work to show how the two are interrelated and how they function as a diptychs prefiguring his multi-channel installations.
