Spaces of Disappearance: The Architecture of Extraordinary Rendition


Filed under:

research, books

Monograph book investigating the sovereign claims of American power and architecture of secret prisons. Spaces of Disappearance reconstructs the network of black site prisons developed in the early years of the so-called War on Terror. The project includes an original archive of architectural representations, redacted documents, and media reports to build a knowingly incomplete spatial history of post-9/11 extraordinary rendition. The CIA interrogation program is presented as a coherent spatial project designed to deny prisoners their human subjectivity and purposefully obscured by government bureaucracy.
