Marx (Highgate), 2002

The grave of Karl Marx at London cemetery Highgate, photographed with an infrared black&white film of the Royal Airforce Arial Reconnaissance.
The specific infrared film IR is used by Military Intelligence to gather special information about unknown terrain and accordingly the enemy’s position.
For example in nature IR infrared film renders the foliage white instead of dark, thus disclosing the hideout of possible adversaries.

Black & White turned upside down: The topic Marx as origin and focal point of political phantasies and strategies of the last century is here embedded in a process of transforming estrangement, providing a dualistic referential system that still commonly serves as a basis for critical thinking.
