Whitechapel Gallery presents avant-garde film-maker Harun Farocki’s large-scale video installation Parallel I-IV (2012-2014).
 
Coinciding with the major exhibition Electronic Superhighway (2016-1966), the work charts the evolution of computer game graphics over 30 years. The rapid technological progression from the earliest symbolic forms to the realism of the present day is projected on four screens, each focussing on different aspects of the video game genre.
 
Over 70 years, Farocki created over 100 films and installations showing how image-making technology can be used to shape public perception. His work often tackles controversial topics, from the use of napalm by the U.S. in the Vietnam War in Inextinguishable Fire (1969), to video games and conflict simulation during the second Iraq War in Serious Games I-IV (2010).
 
As part of Electronic Superhighway Season,
Whitechapel Gallery presents free commissions, displays and screenings, alongside talks, events and live performances.
