People who have saved this event:


An evening on the accessibility of images in a visual present characterized by high performance algorithms, artificial intelligence, ramified data structures and legal framework conditions.


Starting from Harun Farocki’s work with and in pictures, the participants ask about the challenges of visual teaching and ways to counter the imminent loss of visual agency. The event launches the four-day Farocki Now Academy by the Harun Farocki Institute, which will be continued as part of the Harun Farocki retrospective at the silent green Kulturquartier between October 19 and 21.
