Milestones: Bilder der Welt / Introduction

On the occasion of the online screening of Bilder der Welt und Inschrift des Krieges [Images of the World and the Inscription of War] (1989), Hannes Verhoustraete introduces Harun Farocki’s essay film. In Bilder der Welt, the German filmmaker examines the relationship between war and its representation in images. Looking at images becomes reading images. An image captures a fragment of the world, but can also be at the service of destruction.
