Followed by a discussion with Constanze Ruhm (video artist, Vienna and Berlin) and Christine Lang (filmmaker, cultural scientist, and dramaturg, Berlin)


In 
Filmtip: Der Tod des Empedokles (1987), Harun Farocki speaks as, as it were, from one colleague to another with Andreas von Rauch, who is playing the role of Empedokles in the film by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet.

For in 
Arbeiten zu „Klassenverhältnisse“ (1983) by Huillet/Straub,  Farocki himself appears as an actor in the role of Delamarche. This collaboration can be understood as another form of learning and working with images. This film isn’t just a self-portrait, but also a tribute to Jean-Marie Straub – Farocki’s role model, colleague, and friend – and a documentary about an extraordinarily detailed set of staging techniques and methods for directing actors. In this way, Farocki filmed a work of resistance against traditional cinema, against which he also positioned himself with his own films.

Admission: ticket (€ 7,50; members Arsenal and n.b.k.: € 5)
