Part of the edition Harun Farocki. Schriften. (edited by Marius Babias, Antje Ehmann, Tom Holert, Doreen Mende, Volker Pantenburg)

As an editor and contributor of
Filmkritik, Harun Farocki wrote more than 90 articles for the journal between 1976 and 1985 and shaped its character as a platform for polemic and partisan film thinking. Volume 4 of Farocki’s Writings contains all his contributions to Filmkritik from this period, complemented by the radio play “The Big Connecting Pipe” and assorted writing related to his teaching at “Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin” (DFFB). The volume provides insight into the context of Farocki’s films Between two Wars (1978) and Before your Eyes – Vietnam (1982) and traces Farocki’s perspective on the commodification of post 68-counterculture in West Berlin and the FRG in the 1970s. With a contextualising afterword by editor Volker Pantenburg.

Harun Farocki (1944–2014) is one of the most important and internationally influential German filmmakers. His oeuvre comprises more than 100 films and productions: experimental and documentary films; essay, short and feature films. However, his complete works go far beyond this, he has also succeeded internationally as a video and installation artist as well as being a lecturer and media theorist.
