48 Activists with quote from Wim Wenders
‘48 Activists with quote from Wim Wenders’ forms part of a larger body of work that explores the implications of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCPA) and aims to defy it. Covert political actions are staged and the camera used simply as a recording device of the more important actions that take place.
The use of photography, by the State is examined and re-appropriated in act of defiance and empowerment.
Each mugshot, is in itself an illegal protest, by 48 activists, within the exclusion zone.
