Harun Farocki & Trevor Paglen: Visibility Machines

@ Gallery 400

400 South Peoria St, Chicago IL

Opening Friday, January 16th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, March 7th

Visibility Machines: Harun Farocki and Trevor Paglen, curated by Niels Van Tomme, explores the unique roles artists Harun Farocki and Trevor Paglen play as meticulous observers of the global military industrial complex. Investigating forms of military surveillance, espionage, war-making, and weaponry, Farocki and Paglen each examine the deceptive and clandestine ways in which military projects have deeply transformed, and politicized, our relationship to images and the realities they appear to represent. The exhibition initiates critical questions about the role of images in revealing essential but largely concealed information. Visibility Machines places the oeuvres of Harun Farocki and Trevor Paglen within the broader cultural and historical developments of the media with which they creatively work, namely photography, film, and new media.
