Followed by a discussion with Anselm Franke (curator and author, Berlin)

Einschlafgeschichten: Brücken (1977), produced for the children’s program “Sandmännchen”, objects receive the status of actors via the use of childish, infectious typology.

One of the recurring motifs in Farocki’s work are images of bridges and books as objects to convey certain ideas. Both motifs come together in
Wie man sieht (1986)—the filmmaker’s essayistic, constellational film on image, war, and traffic technologies and their progressive computerization.

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