Anika Schwarzlose - Disguise and Deception (signed)


Special edition of 40 copies - hardcover with a signed and numbered dustjacket

A special division of the German army called Tarnen und Täuschen (Disguise and Deception) occupies itself with rather curious affairs. The unit is dedicated to the research and development of camouflage technology and the fabrication of decoy weaponry - inflatable tanks, vehicles and imitation land mines. The militarisation of visual surroundings as practiced by the technicians at the base becomes a prism for the aesthetic considerations of ideological systems, and the reciprocal effects occurring between the two. In form of an image dialogue this publication examines particular sets of relations between aesthetics and ideology.
