HaFI 002 [Material]: Kevin B. Lee

Over at the Residency-Blog, Kevin B. Lee writes about Farocki’s working paper “What Ought to Be Done” [HaFI 002].

“[I]f journalism wasn’t within the domain of the commercial sector back in 1970s Germany, it certainly is today around the world (just as the “public academic sphere” has less economic wherewithal to support cultural initiatives than it may have had 40 years ago). And it has definitely produced a warped view of reality as a commercial product to be continuously packaged and sold, making it the more necessary for efforts to be made to provide for independent and critically-minded relations with images and reality, free from the restrictions of commercialism and other prevailing agendas of our time.”
