Discussion with Harun Farocki and Seamus Kealy: Tuesday 15 February 2011, 6pm ' 7pm.
Exhibition Open: Wednesday 16 February ' Thursday 3 March 2011, 11am ' 6pm
CCA hosts a seminar and exhibition on the groundbreaking work of pioneering filmmaker, artist and writer Harun Farocki. Farocki will be present to give an introduction to the exhibition on Tuesday 15 February.
During a career spanning 40 years Harun Farocki has made more than 90 films that question the production and perception of images. Through both montage and the deliberate composition of filmed and found materials, Farocki opens up the technical, socio-political, and cultural contexts of meaning in the production, distribution, and reception of filmic images.
The works, which range from experimental documentaries for cinema and television to large-scale installations in a gallery context, investigate how audiovisual culture relates to and affects politics, culture, technology and war.
This event has been made possible with the assistance of the Goethe Institut, Glasgow.
