Harun Farocki (1944–2014) was a seminal figure amongst the filmmakers and intellectuals that emerged from the highlycharged political debates in Europe at the end of the 1960s which has not only marked the position of the filmmakerauteur model of production, it also opened up the question of the analytical frame of cinema in relation to sociopolitical events.
Emerging from within this vast body of work that consists of more than 90 films, spanning feature and es say films, works for television, documentaries, installations, texts, exhibitions, and collaborative projects and that combines humanist, anarchic, and aesthetic militancy Haus der Kunst is proud to present the first major presentation of Farocki’s work in Munich since his death in 2014. The exhibition explores the filmmaker‘s continual analysis of shif ting modes of labor, production, and consumption. Indeed, current disenchantments with labor practices across the world, combined with the mass displacement of workers which have taken place under the guise of globalization have added renewed urgency and energy to Farocki‘s incisive reflections on the nature of human and social agency.
The exhibition is organized by Haus der Kunst in partnership with Sammlung Goetz.
