On the occasion of Art Cologne 2019, we are pleased to announce a solo presentation of Julia Scher, which will be jointly presented by Esther Schipper and DREI.
Emerging in the mid 1980s as a precise but playful analyst of social and technological changes, Julia Scher has been dealing with video surveillance for more than 30 years. Her work addresses surveillance both as a concrete phenomenon of control, investigating its apparatus and architecture, as well as the impact of surveillance on the private and public spheres. Very early on, her performance and video installations drew attention to the effects of increasingly ubiquitous cameras and monitors, anticipating our surveillance alienated society.
