News: Harun Farocki, Hardselling

Our booklet HaFI 014: Harun Farocki: Hard Selling: Reframed by Elske Rosenfeld is out now. It contains the script and stills from Harun Farocki’s Hard Selling which I respond to in my text-image commentary “Das Fenster / The Window.” The film was supposed to be shown on East German TV – one month before its dissolution at the end of 1991. It was, however, never completed. In the film Farocki looks at a West German adidas salesman as he looks at the East through car and shop windows. In my commentary, I look back at both from a post-East perspective. You can buy the booklet at Motto.
