About the artist

The oeuvre of the German film maker and video artist Harun Farocki (born 1944 in Nový Jicin / Neutitschein, died 2014, near Berlin) comprises more than 100 feature films, essay films, documentaries, and video-installations. In addition, Farocki has also been collaborating with other filmmakers as scriptwriter, actor and producer. Since 1995 he has had numerous exhibitions and installations in galleries, museums and art festivals worldwide. His films and installations have a strong socio-political focus and reveal a keen interest in the role of technology in modern society. They have dealt with such subjects as capitalism, labour systems, surveillance technology, military reconnaissance – and, like a constant sub-layer of his entire work, with the investigation of the politics of images.
