Harun Farocki

Harun Farocki, 1944–2014  
by
8/4/14

Monopol magazine reported Thursday that German filmmaker Harun Farocki passed away on June 30, 2014, at the age of 70. Born in German-annexed Czechoslovakia in 1944, the Berlin-based artist was known not only for his provocative films, videos, and installations, but also his critical practice as a theorist, editor, curator, and educator. Farocki studied at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB) from 1966 to 1968. He would later become editor of the Munich-based journal Filmkritik a... [more]

Harun Farocki at Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart February 6th, 2014 - January 18th
Posted 3/19/14

In a darkened, hermetic wing of the Hamburger Bahnhof, images are being instrumentalized: software put to use by the U.S. Army to train ground troops in Afghanistan is recycled to de-traumatize those very same soldiers returning as veterans. Presenting this unlikely process in his 2009-2010 series Serious Games, German video artist Harun Farocki reveals a reality incapable of reconciling with itself. Serious Games takes the form of four video cycles comprising three two-channel and one single-ch... [more]

That day, the Yellow Emperor showed the poet his palace. They left behind, in long succession, the first terraces on the west which descend, like the steps of an almost measureless amphitheater, to a paradise or garden whose metal mirrors and intricate juniper hedges already prefigured the labyrinth. They lost themselves in it, gaily at first, as if condescending to play a game, but afterwards not without misgiving, for its straight avenues were subject to a curvature, ever so slight, but con...

SFMOMA’s sprawling new photography survey, Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera Since 1870 turns the high powered gaze of the camera onto itself, exploring over a century of peeping, spying, monitoring, snooping and all other forms of illicit looking facilitated by the handy-dandy technology of the lens. It’s an impressively researched archive of images that is as prescient as it might be paranoid. And like most brilliant exhibits, it elaborates on a simple historical premi... [more]

Posted 4/28/09

          The latest exhibition at the Concorde site of the Jeu de Paume brings together an unlikely couple of artists, Harun Farocki and Rodney Graham. The instigator and curator, Chantal Pontbriand understands their relationship to converge on four concepts associated with technological Modernity: the Archive, the Nonverbal, the Machine and Montage. In her press introduction, she also stated that the links are not made explicit through the exhibition, but that she hopes the viewer will discover... [more]

Interview with Harun Farocki

4/26/09

Paris, Apr. 2009 - At the opening of HF/RG at the Jeu de Paume (on view April 7 - June 7, 2009), Harun Farocki led me, away from the crowd milling around the fusion hors d'oeuvres and wine, down into the cinema space in the bowels of the Jeu de Paume, for a more serious discussion about his work and the exhibition. Dressed in all black with a t-shirt proclaiming Mies van der Rohe's “Less is More”, Farocki was unassuming, generous and ever the intellectual ready to engage in discussion. The followi... [more]
