Cooper Gallery invites you to the preview of Harun Farocki: Consider Labour, the first major exhibition in Scotland of significant works by pioneering filmmaker Harun Farocki (1944-2014).

A panel discussion will start the evening followed by a chance to view the exhibition and a drinks reception.

The panel discussion will reflect on the abiding potency of Farocki’s endeavour and its pertinence in critically engaging with the politics and representation of labour under capitalism today.

Chaired by curator Sophia Yadong Hao, the panel will include artist and curator Antje Ehmann who has initiated and produced the project Labour in a Single Shot in collaboration with Harun Farocki, writer and organiser layla-roxanne hill, and curator Prof. Sarah Perks.
