Hito Steyerl
Germany, b. 1966

I try to project a question. It often takes the form of an experiment, a “what if.” And after asking this question we construct the model, we test the hypothesis—and sometimes we do it to absurd lengths. . . . The approach is to project something on a nonexistent future.
