Images of the World and the Inscription of War 1  by Harun Farocki

Harun Farocki, West-Germany, 1988, 16mm, 01:15:00 min

Feature film, with english subtitles

Harun Farocki reveals how our knowledge of the world strongly depends on the age-old tradition of optical measuring instruments. Consequently, information can only be collected when man and machine work together. From cameras to robots, technology gives us a fragmented view of the world and increases our fascination for images in general.
