On the occasion of Intervals program, held on 16 and 17 May 2013, there has been this interview with filmmaker Harun Farocki. Interval refers to the relationship system based on the montage of fragments that, as it was conceived by Dziga Vertov in 1919, gives meaning to cinema. Intervalos is a new program of projections in either one or two sessions that present contemporary audiovisual creations. The pieces may be Museum productions or works that, somewhere between the performative and the cinematic, convey the new directions of images in movement.

This double session, the first of the Intervalos series, presents two recent films by Harun Farocki, The Silver and the Cross (2010), which was coproduced by Museo Reina Sofía, and Zum Vergleich (In Comparison, 2009), both of which examine the representation of work. The second session consists of a lecture by Thomas Elsaesser, Professor of Film Studies and one of the most renowned experts on Farocki’s films.

With his films, Harun Farocki (Czech Republic, 1944) dissects the control, representation and value systems derived from capital and its images. For over four decades, Farocki has used film, single-channel video and installations to analyse the changing role of work, the new consumption spaces, the relationship between technology, vision and war and the use of documents to narrate history. His filmography has not only renewed the film-essay, it has shown the capacity to articulate critical thinking by looking at the question of the knowledge and the function that images produce.
