Fur Fotografie Museum

The Watching You Watching Me exhibit in the photography museum in Berlin showed different art pieces that focused on surveillance in Berlin and in other places in the world. Tomas Van Houtrye used drones to create surveillance images (one was taken in Maryland!) The images were high contrast in black and white. A Thousand Little Brothers by Husan Elahi showed photos of food, bathrooms, roads etc. All gridded to make a large poster. The idea behind this piece was to take a picture of every second in his life and send it to the FBI. The photos weren’t carefully taken (or didn’t seem so) but the message behind it and the way it was displayed made the piece interesting. Unfortunately museums in Berlin are much more strict about the no photos policy so I was not able to take any pictures of the exhibits in the museum.
