Blind Spots of Memory/ Films: Respite (Aufschub, 2007, Germany, digital, 40 min.) and Images of the World and the Inscription of War. The limitations of historical memory, and the insufficiency of historical documentation to accurately reflect history, are at the center of these two films that focus on war. Farocki constructs an elegant, thoughtful essay-film on the nature of images, the creation of knowledge, and the ways in which violence is often secretly inscribed in seemingly innocuous places.
