As You See. The Works of Harun Farocki

The exhibition is mutually realized by the Goethe-Institut and art quarter budapest and it is the most complete presentation of the German filmmaker in Hungary to date. Additionally to the works on display in the exhibition space, screenings and following discussions will be offered weekly.

Harun Farocki's decades-long career raises relevant questions about the social role of moving pictures, the inseparability of aesthetics and politics, the relationship between work and creating, sensitivity, commitment and solidarity. Farocki is one of the most important artists of visual modernity and technological picture. His essay films established a genre of their own, and his singular interest in film history and media theory resulted more and more in large-scale video installations from the mid-nineties.

The exhibition presents ten works from the late 80s until the 2010s
