Harun Farocki, A New Product, 2012, 36:27 minutes
Scenes from meetings within a company which advises corporations how to design their offices—and the work done there. The film shows that words are not just tools, they have become an object of speculation.

Harun Farocki (1944–2014) was born in German-annexed Czechoslovakia. From 1966 to 1968 he attended the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB). In addition to teaching posts in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Manila, Munich, and Stuttgart, he was a visiting professor at the University of California, Berkeley. Farocki made close to 120 films, including feature films, essay films, and documentaries. He worked in collaboration with other filmmakers as a scriptwriter, actor, and producer. In 1976 he staged Heiner Müller's plays The Battle and Tractor together with Hanns Zischler in Basel, Switzerland. Farocki wrote for numerous publications, and from 1974 to 1984 he was editor and contributing author of the magazine Filmkritik (München). His work has been shown in many national and international exhibitions and installations in galleries and museums.
