Harun Farocki began his career as a film director and was author and editor of Filmkritik in Munich from 1974 to 1984, in which he focused on theoretical ideas about the image. He has produced an immense body of films, videos and writings that discourse on the role of images in the wielding of cultural and political power. In particular, his work focuses on the convergences of war, sport, politics, and institutions as diverse as prisons, the cinema and other media.
