Session 162: “Seeing Through Police” by Mark Greif
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Daniel Morgenthaler presented the essay “Seeing Through Police” by Mark Greif from the Spring 2015 issue of n+1 magazine themed “Conviction”. This summer session took place at Platzspitz.
“One knows to walk toward where police are standing, where they mark the significance of something else: a parade, a concert, a demonstration, or an arrest, an abuse, an accident. One can go to enjoy them — to watch their offer of theater and ritual to daily occurrences, as they establish a space of eventfulness — or to watchdog them, to make sure that their handling of people can’t occur invisibly and unaccounted for.” -n+1 website
