Harun Farocki, Against what? Against whom?( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harun Farocki is one of Germany's most respected filmmakers, artists and writers. Farocki's essay films question the production and perception of images, decoding the medium of film and examining how audiovisual culture relates to politics, technology and war. This first major UK retrospective of his films includes screenings of Videograms of a Revolution, Farocki's iconic collaboration with Andrei Ujica concerning the 1989 Romanian revolution, and and five British premieres, including the award winning Respite, which revisits footage of Westerbork, the Dutch transit camp, filmed in May 1944, and A Day In the Life of A Consumer, an epic portrait of consumer society constructed entirely from advertisements. The season will also include presentations by Georges Didi-Huberman on 13 November and The Otolith Group on 27 November. Curated by Stuart Comer, Antje Ehmann and The Otolith Group. With support from Goethe-Institut London, in collaboration with Art Monthly. Presented in conjunction with Against What? Against Whom?, a survey of Farocki's multi-screen film installations at Raven Row.--Tate website

World 3 by Otolith Group( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exhibition In the year of the quiet sun revisits moments from the grand political project of mid century Pan-Africanism, envisioned by revolutionaries such as W.E.B Du Bois, George Padmore, Frantz Fanon and Kwame Nkrumah as the total liberation of the African continent from Europe, through the building of a United States of Africa. One of the key works in the exhibition is the installation Statecraft. In this installation the short century of decolonization, as formulated by Okwui Enwezor, is envisioned in the form of a political calendar assembled from the unlikely and anaesthetic medium of the postage stamp. These masscult artifacts, issued to commemorate the independence of African nation-states, from the centenary of the founding of the Republic of Liberia in 1947 to the founding of the Republic of South Sudan in 2011, are integrated into an elaborately designed display system that invites sustained attention to this often overlooked media. The artists publication WORLD 3 both completes and complements the exhibition. In close relation to the work Statecraft, the book also employs the postage stamp as its main visual medium. The book assembles a trialogue between First Day Covers from newly independent African states, envelopes from the diaspora of the digital auction and an associative inventory of quotations from thinkers such as Walter Abish, Ayi Kwei Armah, Amilcar Cabral, Helene Cixous, Basil Davidson, Assef Djebar, Jacques Derrida, WEB Du Bois, Bessie Head, Frantz Fanon, Ruth First, Clarice Lispector, Kwame Nkrumah, Ali A Mazrui, Achille Mbembe, Fred Moten, Sony Labou Tansi and Nathaniel Mackey

Otolith nowhere ground( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Earth is out of bounds for now; it remains a planet accessible only through media. the viewer is told at the beginning of Otolith, an essay-film that imagines a future in which humankind is confined to outer space. Through a variety of archival footage - encompassing recent digital news footage and 35mm film shot in the 1940's - the narrative weaves together public histories and private memories. Imagining a future in order to look back on the past, Otolith aims at reorienting our perceptions of the world."

Otolith II( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The point of departure for Otolith II is the archive of Anasuya Gyan-Chand, an educationalist and feminist active in the post-war milieu of trans-national activism. Gyan-Chand's extensive archive consists of photographic prints, negatives, contact sheets, airmail correspondence, journals and newspaper cutting which constitute a valuable cross section through the mid 20th Century of secular trans-nationalism. We see delegations of Indian feminists meeting women's groups, visiting museums, hospitals, factories, laboratories, state gardens, attending conferences, summits and hearings, throughout China, Russia, Japan and Yugoslavia among other countries. At a time when the art world is engaged in re-examining the potentials and legacies of post-war feminist art practice, this archive invites us to rethink the entanglements between feminism, communism and the Non Aligned Movement. The Otolith Group's longstanding interest in the idea of the past potential future is focused around the poetics of moments such as this which allow them to rethink what it means to inhabit the present."--Container
