Program Channel 
features the addition of a new module i.e. the project 
"Counter Surveillance" by Rozalinda Borzila (Romania/USA) 
"Geography Lessons (... cont.) 
Increasingly, the spaces we navigate are policed through technologies 
of visualization and information management. The X-Ray machine, 
racial profiling practices, surveillance devices, scrutiny of documents, 
fingerprinting etc are meant to make everything, visible or invisible, a 
vailable for inspection. Justified through the imperative of security, 
vast databases track our movements, health records, purchases, 
reading habits, web navigation and so on. 
And much is at stake in representation. 
This series of small interventions in highly controlled spaces began 
shortly after September 11th 2001. Using a video camera as a way of looking back, 
I shoot images in airport security zones: inside X-Ray machines, at passport check points, 
immigration control, baggage claim. 
Geography Lessons (... cont.) is an on-going archive of these video images, 
a structured and somewhat absurd system of unauthorized counter surveillance, 
a meditation on the nature and implications of representation. 
This website contains excerpts of a few videos taken around, and inside of, airport X-Ray machines." 
(artist's statement)
Violence Channel 
is featuring the project "Virus" by Grègoire Zabé 
" IRAQ - the war and post war periode", 
a new ongoing project. 
Artist go down to the post war situation in Iraq from most different views. 
The torture executed by US military against Iraqi prisoners 
shocked the world and made of the war in Iraq a never ending story.
Currently these artists joint the project and are featured
Jaqueline Heer, Brian Goeltzenleuchter
dlsan and Jody Zellen
and hopefully more will join--->
