The Harun Farocki Institut is part of an informal network of individuals, groups, and institutions which feel connected to the person, the ideas, and the work of Harun Farocki. The HaFI does not “represent” this network, however it is happy to work as its agent, mediator, and facilitator. As a formally registered organization the HaFI may have its official bodies and committees, however it effectively extends beyond the borders of this – very moderate – organizational infrastructure.
Anyone who shares one or all of the institute’s concerns can and should feel themselves to be a member of the HaFI. Since the founding phase of the HaFI there have been numerous meeting of the network and information about the institute’s activities have been disseminated within the network via newsletters, Facebook, and the website. At the same time the network is the most important resource for the work of the institute. Suggestions, criticism, proposals, project ideas, and cooperation concepts from the network are essential if the HaFI is to develop.
Institutions belonging to the HaFI network include:
Arsenal – Institut für Film und Videokunst e.V.
basis voor actuele kunst (bak)
Dutch Art Institute
Europäische Medienwissenschaft, Potsdam
Harun Farocki GbR
Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin
