harun farocki

“Who is Farocki?” was the now famous heading that Cahiers du cinéma used in what was probably the very first essay about Farocki in 1975. That is a long while ago, and it confirms that ‘Harun Farocki’ has been around for a long while: already by 1975 he had been making films for a decade. The first time I wrote about Farocki was in 1983, the first time I introduced him to a live audience was in 1993, by which time I could with some justification call him “Germany’s best-known unknown filmmaker”. A year later, Farocki had his first major retrospective in the United States, following several festival screenings of his Images of the World and Inscription of War (1988).
