Harun Farocki, 1944-2014

Tags: , , , , ,

The esteemed German film and video artist Harun Farocki has passed away at the age of 70. His formidable career in cinema began in the 1960s and included work as a journal editor and a professor. Farocki’s works of art, whether in the cinema, the gallery, or other settings, were often radical in form and content with a strong socio-critical edge.  Miriam De Rosa’s recent article on his poetics can be accessed here. Look for a special contribution in memoriam in the forthcoming Autumn 2014_’War’ issue of NECSUS.
