Eric Beltrán, interviewed by Rodrigo Ortiz Monasterio

This interview was shot at Museo Tamayo in Mexico City and was produced by Kadist Art Foundation. Here, Beltrán elaborates on Atlas Eidolon, a sculptural model addressing the notion of collective memories through image production. Basing his research on renaissance systems of art and memory by Ramon Llull and Giordano Bruno, Beltrán also references Ady Warburg, the founder of modern iconology as developed in Warburg’s Atlas Mnemosyne.

Harun Farocki, The Words of the Chairman (Die Worte des Vorsitzenden), 1967. 16mm, 3 minutes.
e-flux has just posted a beautifully written tribute to Harun Farocki by Hito Styerl.  

Over more than four decades, Farocki produced an extraordinary body of work that, for someone who continuously compared things, situations, and images to one another, is paradoxically incomparable. In all he did, he kept it simple, clear, and grounded. In cinematic terms: at eye level. His legacy spans generations, genres, and geographies. And the abundance of ideas and perspectives in his work does not cease to inspire. It trickles, disseminates, perseveres.
