In this “book” (or unbound collection of folded pages) Christof Nüssli tackles one of the greatest torture scandals of recent times, using material such as images and files from Abu Ghraib prison and the War on Terror released by the United States government. He calls upon viewers to question what they see, and to face the feelings these images evoke while looking at them. Can such images shock, despite not showing anything shocking? Does a censored transparency still create transparency? Redacted documents, close-ups of isolated body parts, vague bruises and marks on the skin... many disturbing questions emerge as only the surface of this sordid narrative is touched upon.
