In the work of visual artist Hito Steyerl (Munich, 1966) constructed texts and edited images enlarge the conditions of film essays, reflecting on and intervening in the systems that circulate information, and in those that present and represent the artwork. Her texts, lectures, films and audiovisual installations merge the philosophical and political reflection of critical activism inserted in the world of production and the circulation of the image and the word. Through this perspective the artist develops a critical body of work on modes of perception, control, surveillance, in addition to militarisation, migration, feminism and the political image – questions she feels have the capacity to create realities.
