Zone*Interdite caused a worldwide sensation with the revelation of a children's prison in Guantánamo Bay, the picture evidence of the secret prison in Bagram or the insights into the prison camp Camp Bucca in Iraq. However, the project is not about political or military strategies, but is concerned with something that affects us all directly and personally: our own imagination and the capacity of our independent perception.

Zone*Interdite (French for forbidden, military zone) is based on a contradiction: we are not allowed to enter military areas, the depiction is forbidden. Nevertheless, images appear in the media. www.zone-interdite.net is a collection, localisation and condensation of these images. The media art project questions our own perceptions between power and powerlessness. The forbidden terrain is explored in virtual reconstructions. Behind a reflex of confession (friend or foe? patriot or traitor?), approaches to sovereign reflection open up.
