20 Jan Drone Vision:
Warfare, Surveillance, Protest
Drone Vision: Warfare, Surveillance, Protest brings the perfidious character of drones to the fore. Namely, seeing without being seen – and the associated insecurity and vulnerability, but also the usage for resistance and protest. The book presents three projects that move between art and politics – from migrant protests to colonial surveillance and the aesthetics of drone photography. The latter shows the geological scars and war remnants of five abandoned military sites in Israel – army strongholds, shooting ranges and urban warfare training facilities – and juxtaposes them with the personal and political scars engraved and marked on the private human body.
