Farocki Now: A Temporary Academy

Harun Farocki Retrospective 2017

In the fall of 2017 the Harun Farocki Retrospective will be held in Berlin. The accompanying exhibitions in the Neuen Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) and at Savvy Contemporary open on September 13, and on September 15 a comprehensive program begins in Arsenal with all the films and TV work.

Within the framework of the three month retrospective we will be establishing an educational-performative platform at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) and the silent green Kulturquartier from October 18 to 21, 2017. On four days “Farocki Now: A Temporary Academy” will serve as a forum for workshops, presentations, and debates which explore the contemporary relevance of Harun Farocki’s work and thought, placing it in new contexts and activating its productive potential. Six study groups from colleges, universities and self-organized institutes from Alexandria, Berlin, Jakarta, Philadelphia, and Potsdam will present their months-long research extending from Farocki’s work in the broad or narrow sense.

On October 18, the academy will be opened with the discursive evening “Accessing Images” in cooperation with the HKW. The academy will be held in English.

Free entry.
