An Interview with Trevor Paglen on the occasion of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2016

Trevor Paglen (b. 1974, USA) is shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2016 for his exhibition The Octopus at Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt, Germany (20 June – 30 August 2015).

Paglen’s project represents complex topics like mass surveillance, data collection, classified satellite and drone activities and the systems of power connected to them. His installation comprises of images of restricted military and government areas, skylines showing the flight tracks of passing drones, sculptural elements and research assembled in collaboration with scientist, amateur astronomers and human rights activists.

Through his work Paglen demonstrates that secrets cannot be hidden from view, but that their traces and structures are visible evidence in the landscape.
