With this overview of the work of Harun Farocki (born 1944), Museum Ludwig con-tinues its series highlighting important film makers whose work straddles both the exhibition space and the cinema. Selected video installations as well as the screen-ing of his oeuvre in the museum cinema will give a new insight into the artist and film maker’s creative production. His cinematic enquiries into socio-political symptoms are coupled with questions about the circumstances in which cinematic images are pro-duced and received. Since 1995 Farocki has made video installations in exhibition spaces. Apart from the large work Deep Play that Farocki developed for documenta XII, the exhibition will also feature his latest piece, Immersion. While Farocki’s trilogy Auge/Maschine, which he made between 2001 and 2003, explored the influence that military imaging technology has on our understanding of reality, in his latest project he turns his attention to the way computer game aesthetics interweave with the new computer programme “Virtual Iraq”, which the US Department of Defense has funded for the purpose of soldier training and post-traumatic treatment.
