Fundación PROA in La Boca has recently inaugurated a new exhibition of renowned German video artist and filmmaker Harun Farocki. The exhibit consists of five  video installations and screenings of his three latest films.

Farocki´s cinematographic universe is centered on the analysis of images produced by contemporary society and the forms of power involved in their production, exhibition and consumption.  Eye/Machine II (2002), for example, examines the role of images and media in the construction of war, whilst Workers Leaving the Factory in Eleven Decades shows different representations of workers throughout film history.

Fundación PROA is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 11am to 7pm.  Guided tours are offered from Tuesdays to Fridays at 5pm and on weekends at 3pm and 5pm. Av. Pedro de Mendoza 1929, La Boca.  4104.1000.  info@proa.org.
