Farocki’s Living Room

In the first edition of the Rosa Mercedes online journal, Marianna Maruyama interviews some of the people who took part in the “Farocki Now” Academy and speaks with a few of the institute’s neighbors in the silent green Kulturquartier. The living room is a space for conversation and contemplation, a room situated at the heart of the home, and a place to think from within.
