Gefängnisbilder (Director: Harun Farocki, 2000, OV/EnS, 60 min)

Followed by a discussion with Benedikt Reichenbach (graphic desisigner and editor, Berlin) and Volker Pantenburg (Harun Farocki Institut, Berlin)


Gefängnisbilder is another component in an archive that would be dedicated to “filmic prints” and their iconography, economics and politics. Both early films find themselves here again: The prison gate recalls the factory gate and the prisoners are taught discipline through manual labor that is supposed to improve them morally. Farocki was taken by Michele Mancini and Giuseppe Perrella's “Pier Paolo Pasolini: Corpi e Luoghi”, which uses the Italian filmmaker's films like an “image bank” in a similar way and organizes them according to motifs. They categorized an inordinate amount of pictures from his films according to similarity and difference.

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