“How do people disappear in an age of total over-visibility? Are people hidden by too many images? Do they go hide among other images? Do they become images?”

About Hito Steyerl

An acute observer and interpreter of globalized and digitized cultures, Hito Steyerl investigates how images are created, translated, packaged, transported and consumed. Her works remind us that in an era in which phone cameras and surveillance are everywhere, we can always be seen by a lens. By exposing these systems of capitalism, Steyerl’s multifaceted works empower us to be active agents in the world. The artist also asks us to consider our own involvement in the images and stories we create, view and share.
