In Europe of 1989, history was taking place before our very eyes. Farocki and Ujica’s Videograms shows the Romanian revolution of December 1989 in a new mediabased form of historiography.
As demonstrators occupied the state television station in Bucharest and broadcast continuously for 120 hours (between Ceausescu’s last speech on 21 December 1989 and the first televised summary of his trial five days later) the television studio became an instrument of revolution and a site in which history was made.
