Description

Programmed by Beguiled Cinema!

"In the summer of 1996 we filmed application training courses in which one learns how to apply for a job. School drop outs, university graduates, people who have to be retrained, the long-term unemployed, recovered drug addicts and mid-term managers – all of them are supposed to learn how to how to market and sell themselves, a skill to which the term 'self-management' is applied. The self is perhaps nothing but a metaphysical hook from which to hang a social identity. It was Kafka who likened being accepted for a job to entering the Kingdom of Heaven; the paths leading to both of them are completely uncertain. Today one speaks of getting a job with the greatest obsequiousness, but without any grand expectations." -Harun Farocki (1996, 58 min) 

Presented with Greg Stephen Reigh's PAYING MY BILLS (2014, 16 min) and various 16mm educational shorts from the Indiana University Libraries Moving Image Archive. Special thanks to IULMIA archivist Andy Uhrich for helping to curate the latter selection.
