Details

From Guantánamo Bay to mock Afghan and Iraqi villages hosting immersive, realistic wargames on American military bases, former civil-rights lawyer and conceptual documentary artist Debi Cornwall looks at official fictions to reveal hidden truths. Debi’s multimedia installations and photography books, Welcome to Camp America: Inside Guantánamo Bay (Radius Books, 2017) and Necessary Fictions (Radius Books, 2020) are internationally acclaimed for their nuanced critiques of “state-created realities.”

In this seminar, Debi shares her practice and her process, from researching and negotiating access, to documenting invisible systems and creating a context that invites viewers to look anew.
