Writings, Vol. 4: I have enough!

As an editor and author of Filmkritik, Harun Farocki wrote more than 90 articles for the journal between 1976 and 1985 and shaped its character as a platform for polemic and partisan film thinking. Volume 4 of the Writings reprints all his contributions to Filmkritik from this period, complemented by the radio play “The Big Connecting Pipe” and writing related to his teaching at “Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin” (DFFB). The book allows insights into the context of his films BETWEEN TWO WARS (1978) and BEFORE YOUR EYES – VIETNAM (1982) and shows Farocki’s perspective on the commodification of post-68 counterculture in West Berlin and the FRG in the 1970s. It contains a contextualising essay by editor Volker Pantenburg.
