Trevor Paglen

The photographer, author and activist Trevor Paglen is interested in all things that are cloaked in secrecy and whose very existence is meant to be kept hidden from the general public: CIA and NSA outposts, spy satellites, secret military bases. With the help of precision telescopes and astronomical instruments, Paglen locates that which is meant to remain invisible. His photographs and videos are the result of extensive research: Paglen’s meticulous forensic quest for access to the “black world”, that enormous and yet largely unknown segment of the US military and intelligence apparatus. Works of art and pieces of evidence at the same time, his creations are reconnaissance in the best sense. (Lecture in English)

The lecture is part of the two-day opening of Political Populism
