November 2014
James Benning, FAROCKI, 2014. Film still.

Harun Farocki was a thoughtful man. For me he made sense of things. He looked in the right places. He was analytic and poetic, subtle and bold. And he knew the power of redundancy and form. But what I liked the most was his laugh. It came from deep within his heart and soul. When I wrote his daughter Anna to say he will live on within us all, she wrote back saying she wasn’t ready yet to accept just that. And she is right … we have lost a lot. Harun Farocki rest in the peace you were so fighting for.
