The first monograph on the prolific German filmmaker, video artist and author Harun Farocki (born 1944), Against What? Against Whom? compiles a complete filmography, beginning with Farocki's early Marxist educational films, "Direct Cinema" works and his film-essays, and more recent installations that draw on a variety of found footage. Against What also contains a checklist of installations alongside over 20 essays from contributors including Nora Alter, Raymond Bellower Kodwo Eshun, Raqs Media Collective and a new essay by Farocki himself, which combines reflections on his own films with a short history of film-making in West Germany over the past 40 years.
