World Gone By Computer Class

The program of video essays by Harun Farocki will be accompanied by a series of seminars and practical sessions during which we will explore themes raised in the films. These include rethinking methods of researching images when they are hyper-weaponized and their production is radically speeded up, “disarming” the operational image in cinema or text, and organizing research in dangerous conditions.

HOW TO TAKE PART

To take part in the seminars, please apply by 23:59 on December 4. We will be in touch if you are selected.
