Five art installations filling the space of Nieuw Dakota give an intriguing insight into the subjects surveillance, armed UAV’s and Deepfake. The artist combines her own footage with other well known images from mass media.
Her transdisciplinary, transmedial artistic research involves a cultural analysis, film and media theory, semiotics, surveillance, artificial intelligence and drone studies. Albuquerque is inspired by the philosophical theories of Jacques Derrida, Andrea Miller and Lisa Parks on “hauntology”, artificial intelligence and racial and gender biases in war technologies.
Paula Albuquerque is a visual artist and scholar living and working in Amsterdam. Her work is informed by intersectional decolonial practices, focusing on visual technologies both analog and digital, surveillance and the construction of operative imagery.
