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. Farocki (1944–2014) was an ethnographer of capitalist living environments, which he intellectually dissected and analyzed. Vital to his approach and his oeuvre is the examination of the meaning of images, their genesis, and, in particular, the power structures inscribed in them.
The Harun Farocki Retrospective is a project by Neuer Berlin Kunstverein (n.b.k.) in cooperation with Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art, the Harun Farocki Institute, Harun Farocki GbR, silent green Kulturquartier, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König and Savvy Contemporary as part of the Berlin Art Week, sponsored by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture.
