Brought to our attention by Derek Gregory via his resourceful Geographical Imaginations blog: an open call for contributions to the “Corona Notebooks” of Warscapes, a recommended independent online magazine “that provides a lens into current conflicts across the world.” Warscapes is looking for short, 2-3 minute videos “of yourself thinking about this pandemic, maybe accessing a previous memory, maybe reporting on an injustice, maybe narrating a sweet fragment from your daily life, maybe recounting a second chance that this pandemic gave you, maybe telling us about a loved one you reconnected with, maybe you’ve seen a movie or read a book that was powerful, maybe telling us about having the illness. The tone, the tale, the genre and the language is yours to choose. There is an overwhelming amount of news and information but we will together weave an emotionally vibrant and artistic tapestry.”

Almost too good to be true in these times of pandemically enforced streaming: Means TV claims to be “the world’s first worker-owned, post-capitalist streaming service,” “entirely funded by people like you.” It has “a library of films, documentaries, and shows with new programming added all the time,” as well “live weekly shows covering news, the working class, gaming and sports. All available to subscribers for $10/month across desktop, mobile and smart TV devices like Roku, Fire and Apple TV. No advertisements or product placements. No corporate backers or VC cash ever.” See also the respective article at Hyperallergic.

PUBLISHING FAROCKI’S WRITINGS TOGETHER

You can support the printing of Farocki’s writings with a donation now. In addition to the funding we already raised, we need another 10.000 Euros to publish the volumes 5 & 6 of Harun Farocki’s writings and thereby to complete the edition of all texts by Farocki.

Between 2017 and 2019 we released the first four volumes of Farocki’s writings. These include his autobiography as fragments, the book on Godard he wrote together with Kaja Silverman, and two volumes with all texts published between 1964 and 1985.
To round off the edition, we are now preparing the publication of two further volumes, which bring together the texts from the last three decades of his life.

 

BANDS 5 (texts 1986-2000) & 6 (texts 2001-2014)

Volumes 5 and 6 cover a time period, in which Farocki produced film and video installations more and more in the context of the visual arts, thereby expanding the reception his cinematic works. From then on, Farocki’s audiovisual works oscillated between the fields of film and contemporary art. This development in his practice also led Farocki to new approaches in terms of image analysis and cultural criticism – all of which are reflected in the texts written between 1986 and 2014 to be made accessible in volumes 5 and 6.
