Farocki (and more)

This week in area showings:

Thursday (9/16) Harun Farocki shows his Immersion (2009) at the Slought Foundation. The video installation concerns the connection between virtual reality and the military. The showing will be part of a dialogue between Farocki and Antje Ehmann on "The Image in Question: War – Media – Art." 4017 Walnut Street. 6:30-8:30 pm.

Earlier that day, Farocki will be presenting Peter Nestler’s film, Death and Devil, which concerns Nestler’s grandfather Rosen in Sweden who participated in expeditions before WWI in South America and Africa.
