Simon Menner - Artist Talk

Simon Menner is a Berlin-based artist who explores issues of surveillance through his work in photography, alternately exhibiting his own staged photographs and images co-opted from photographic archives. Menner’s recent work has taken on politically manipulative uses of the photographic image and their effect on the perception of contemporary conflicts. In these various projects, the artist has examined ways in which the medium of photography can be implemented to render visible or invisible a conflict’s participants. At Decad, Menner will speak about his work in light of the paradoxical political moment in which photographic technology is both omnipresent and strictly guarded, looking particularly to the use of drones and of the internet in the production and dissemination of images.
