For the third edition of the Harun Farocki Residency HaFI has invited Ali Hussein Al Adawy to spend three months in Berlin. Ali Hussein Al Adawy is an Alexandria-based film curator, editor, and critic of moving images, urban artistic practices, and cultural history. Al Adawy will present some of his current research in which he uses Farocki’s methodology (deep research, investigation, montage, joining, separation…) to revisit significant films and artworks from Egypt and the context of the Arab world. By way of this Al Adawy also explores the very same methodology which Farocki employed to depict “global southern” contexts, especially in terms of labor, gender and identity. (The Harun Farocki Residency is supported by the Goethe-Institut).
Presentation followed by Q & A
The event will be held in English
