Through her writing practice, films, and performative lectures, Hito Steyerl considers the status of the image in an increasingly global and technological world. Steyerl’s work, which has been presented at the Venice Biennale, is part of a lineage that includes Harun Farocki and Chris Marker, blending aspects of documentary with the film essay to explore globalization, political economies, visual culture, and the status of art production. A particular theme of the Berlin-based artist’s work is the proliferation of images and how they inscribe and affect economy and culture on both a macro and micro scale. “Images do not represent reality, they create reality, they are second nature,” Steyerl has said.
