Year  2011

A lecture performance with five projected images and a public reading that could start like this: “Since World War II, aerial photographs are urban planners' preferred perspective for land-surveying purposes, and are a strong example of  civil applications of military technologies.

In "La Découverte Aérienne du Monde", (1948) the French sociologist Paul-Henry Chombart de Lauwe, a key thinker of French post-war urbanism, formulates a methodology for ‘extracting'geospatial information from aerial photographs.

Aerial photography was a particularly important tool for urban intervention in the case of ‘New Towns,' such as the master plan of Casablanca under French colonial rule.”

With Marion von Osten, artist and professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Conference organized as part of The Human Snapshot Symposium (2011)
