MIT ANDEREN MITTELN – BY OTHER MEANS BY HARUN FAROCKI

By Elisa Arca

The retrospective Mit anderen Mitteln – By Other Means by Harun Farocki at the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) is part of a series of events organized in Berlin that, four years after the death of the director, cover the different aspects of his work : his installations (in the case of nbk), his complete filmography (in a program at Arsenal Cinema), the influence of his body of work on academic circuits dedicated to image thinking, among many other events, including the release of his unpublished autobiography (as part of a first volume of his writings by Walther König publishing house).

COURTISANE 2017: HOW DOES IT MEAN? – JACQUES RANCIÈRE AND DISSENT!

by Tara Judah

Courtisane, as a festival, far more than most, creates its fiction with all the skill and care that curation ought. The films are selected – not for their timeliness or premiere status, but for their ability to engage and provoke curiosity – and are shown in the hope of sharing something as simple yet powerful as “notes on cinema”.

WORKERS LEAVING THE FACTORY BY HARUN FAROCKI

By Lauren Bliss

Farocki’s technical genius is in his ability to combine the specificity of the cinematic apparatus, the mechanically produced representation of the body, with the modern regimentation of the body to effect an imaging of the process of subjectification. As an invocation to the production line of the factory, with its repetition, regulation, and homogenization, the use of different films showing the same thing figures how the body is shaped, condensed, and squeezed to fit to the mechanical mould.

HARUN FAROCKI, DESCONFIAR DE LAS IMÁGENES

Por Eduardo Russo

El actual volumen recoge varios de los artículos antes compilados en Crítica de la mirada, en una cuidadosa traducción de Julia Giser. La publicación en sí prolonga el exquisito trato con que la editorial Caja Negra viene publicando su material sobre cine, en una serie en la que pueden encontrarse ciertos volúmenes de Godard, Kluge o Glauber Rocha, cuya publicación parecía utópica en estas latitudes hace unos pocos años.
