Images of the World and the Inscription of War Reżyseria Harun Farocki

Recenzje krytyków

In Farocki’s hands (quite literally), this material is woven into a sharp, provocative, and multi-layered refutation of photographic reality… Cutting to the heart of media violence and the essence of an unspeakable evil and with searing humanism, Images of the World is one of the most influential, quoted, and urgent essay films, as relevant today as it was when Farocki made it.

Through a number of excurses on the earliest uses of photography to document and measure architectural monuments, industrial uses of robotic cameras, and photographic documentation of Auschwitz, the film demonstrates the simple, horrid fact that ‘one annihilates what one makes an image of’ in the most metaphorical and literal of senses. Images, it becomes clear, are integral to the exercise of instrumental reason, to the domination of the world and nature.
