WORLD PREMIERE Images Studying Images: Kevin B. Lee on Harun Farocki + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts

German filmmaker Harun Farocki (1944 – 2014) produced over 120 works of film, television and video art, but his immense impact on the media landscape has yet to be fully appreciated.

Following his tenure as the first artist-in-residence of the newly formed Harun Farocki Institut in Berlin, director Kevin B. Lee produced a series of video essays on Farocki for the Goethe-Institut. The video essays adopt Farocki’s aesthetic strategy of ‘images studying images’ to explore the artist’s formidable oeuvre, applying such novel approaches as desktop documentary and videographic lexicography.

This screening presents Lee’s three video essays alongside key works spanning Farocki’s five-decade career.
