‘however ‘lifelike’ we strive to make it (and this frenzy to be lifelike can only be our mythic denial of an apprehension of death)
it is a kind of primitive theatre
a kind of Tableau Vivant
a figuration of the motionless and made-up face
beneath which we see the dead’

‘Beyond the specific political and ecological narratives suggested by each work, these collages embody the loss of photography’s truth claims and informational value. Amidst this undoing, image-making has returned to something more like illustration or Western historical painting through the potential for infinite mutability in digital post-production and computer generated imagery’.

Stills from ‘Industry und Fotografie’, 1979, Harun Farocki

‘It is a new development in history that work is not accessible anymore, it has disappeared behind walls like a private possession…  Since the start of big industry, work can no longer be viewed. It has become invisible, lost its concreteness. The names of the production factories rise above the walls… they are comprehended as words rather than as images.’
