They cross paths in their distinctive usage of film and video. Their artistic practices share concerns about medium, history and self-representation, the artist's place and role. This book, as does the exhibition HF|RG conceived by Chantal Pontbriand, explores four of the recurring concepts to be found in their work : the Archive, the Non Verbal, the Machine and Montage.
Four philosophers, Catherine Perret, Catherine Malabou, Peter Szendy and Christa Blümlinger, address these four classical concepts taken from (post) modernist theory in the light of the work of Harun Farocki and Rodney Graham.
Two emblematic texts taken from the artists' writings echo this conceptual endeavor. In an image section, the presentation of the works contribute to the reader's own associations and editing.
