The Berlin Documentary Forum is a program for the production and presentation of documentary works that testify to the medium’s inherent tensions and paradoxes. Founded in 2010 in response to the growing importance of documentary forms in the arts, it fills a gap in the institutional landscape by creating a platform exclusively devoted to critical engagement with “the documentary” as an art form.

The third edition of the Berlin Documentary Forum focuses on the way in which narratives structure and produce social reality. Rather than the content of stories, the subject of debate is what narration, as a practice, actually does in society - in other words, the mechanism of narration.

The Berlin Documentary Forum 3 addresses the tradition of narrative realism, and presents recent works that redefine both documentary and realism. A four-day program of unique live presentations, screenings, and exhibitions will run in multiple forms and formats throughout the HKW building, with new projects by Maria Thereza Alves, Jimmie Durham and Richard Hill, Shaina Anand & Ashok Sukumaran, Michael Baers, Catherine David, Smadar Dreyfus, Harun Farocki, Sylvère Lotringer with Jesse Lerner, Sergio González Rodríguez and Sofia Canales, Rabih Mroué, Roee Rosen, Werner Ružička, Eran Schaerf with Pauline Boudry, Elfriede Jelinek, Eva Meyer, Uriel Orlow and Tim Zulauf, Cornelia Lund,Stefanie Schlüter, Eduardo Thomas & Koyo Yamashita, and others.

Smadar Dreyfus’ installation "School (2009-11)" will be on view through July 13.
