Harun Farocki Against What? Against Whom?




Harun Faroki’s practice as a whole has a diverse collaboration of manipulating mass media into two split screens, or two dominant screens that interpritate various elements that surround the surrounding physical environment in other sense just as a symbolic icon that reflects what has already been experienced through Avant Garde and other aspects that interweave with current art practice.

The German film-maker Harun Farocki turned to making films for two or more screens in the mid-1990s, works that moved him from the realm of cinema to that of art galleries. Farocki’s so-called “essay films” use found footage to highlight the variance between an “official” version of historical events as portrayed in the media, and that of real life, reflecting on the way that society uses photographs and the moving image. Raven Row and Tate Modern have come together to present work from throughout Farocki’s career in the most comprehensive showing of his work in the UK.
