The smallest unit of this kind of labor, on which Farocki's film Zum Vergleich exclusively concentrates, is the brick. The film's title imparts an essential aspect: Farocki merely offers material - the task of comparing lies with the spectator.
I wanted to propose a film that contributes to the concept of labor. A film that compares labor in a traditional society, for example in Africa, with an early industrial society, like in India, and a highly industrial one in Europe. House construction is the subject of comparison. (Harun Farocki)
