Wikiland - 2007-07-12 - 00:59:46
After 2011, the work on Wikiland has continued and the time span has changed to 2007-07-12–00:59:46. The project now revolves around the leakage by whistle-blower Manning of a so-called gun-camera-video from 12 July 2007, when Reuters Photographers and civilians where gunned down from an Apache helicopter in Baghdad. The publication of the material by Wikileaks in 2010 shocked the world, but the focus from the event soon changed thereafter. In 2013 the topic was raised again, but then as a narrative element in the Hollywood production “Fifth Estate“ (Touchstone Pictures / Disney, 2013). 00:59:46 is a moment in this movie where the boundary between a real and a fictional person (Julian Assange / Benedict Cumberbatch) seem dissolved.
Wikiland 2007-07-12–00:59:46 was released during NY Art Book Fair
