A series of video essays on Harun Farocki produced by Kevin B. Lee for the Goethe Institut.


Harun Farocki (1944-2014) produced over 120 works of film, television and video art, but his immense impact on the media landscape has yet to be fully appreciated. Following his tenure as the first artist-in-residence of the newly formed Harun Farocki Institut in Berlin, Kevin B. Lee produced a series of video essays on Farocki for the Goethe-Institut. The video essays adopt Farocki’s own strategy of “images studying images” to explore the artist’s own formidable oeuvre, applying such novel approaches as desktop documentary and videographic lexicography. This screening matches the video essays with key works spanning Farocki’s five decade career.
