Trevor Paglen and Thomas Keenan in conversation

      June 29, 2006
      ‘Fine Print: Alternative Media’ at P.S.1 at Contemporary Art Center, New York
      A series of public programs co-organized by P.S.1 with innovative publications from New York and nationwide, including The Believer, Cabinet, Clear Cut Press, Esopus, Influence, The Journal of Aesthetics & Protest, Mass Appeal, n+1, The Relay Project, and Topic, as well as Bidoun. Tracking Bidoun presented a talk by artist and geographer Trevor Paglen on the CIA’s use of civilian planes to ‘render’ and ‘disappear’ suspected terrorists. Paglen also took on his recent trip to Kabul on the trail of secret prisons, black sites in the US, as well as what unmarked airplanes can tell us, and what they cannot. Thomas Keenan, head of Bard College’s Human Rights Project, acted as respondent.
