The Harun Farocki Institute Presents

HARD SELLING

Changes in political system produce images, words, and sounds. Not just the “currency union” or “German Reunification” in 1990, but also the financial crisis in Argentina in 2001 mark systemic interventions at a macro-political level, whereby the regulatory role of the start is taken on by the mechanisms of the deregulated market. The Harun Farocki Institute presents HARD SELLING(Harun Farocki) on the one hand, conversations with an Adidas travelling salesman in Brandenburg in 1990 which describe the transition from East Germany to a market capitalist system by way of sport and leisure items; on the other, material from Alice Creischer and Andreas Siekmann stemming from their time in Buenos Aires in 2001. They show the protests that accompanied the financial crisis in Argentina. While one state disappears here, there the economy is being denationalized. Visual strategies enter into a relationship of tension with systemic crises and uncompleted protests. With guests A. Creischer und A. Siekmann (dm) (20.11.)

Unfortunately Alice Creischer and Andreas Siekmann cannot be present, as announced in the Arsenal program. We will organize an event with them at a later stage. Instead, we will show material in connection with "Hard Selling."
