This publication attempts to map a visual approach to one of the world’s foremost documentary and essay filmmakers, Harun Farocki. “Diagrams” traces the dynamics of ten of Farocki’s films and presents them along with each film’s complete commentaries, dialogues and subtitles, celebrating their major critical gesture: the exposition of mediality. The diagram is not only a long recurring figure in Farocki`s films. More conceptually, it can be developed as another key element of his practice. Based on this idea, the book operates with still images beyond an illustrative or documentary purpose. By means of repetition, interruption and displacement, the configurations pursue specific movements within each film, taking into account mechanisms of order and open-endedness that are characteristic for Farocki’s work in general.
