Collective Modes of Destruction

Anna Kim

Writer Anna Kim’s lecture in the framework of the art conference ‘Balancing Togetherenss’ retraces the life of the photographer Edith Tudor-Hart (née Edith Suschitzky 1908, in Vienna, died 1973 in Brighton), who worked as a Soviet agent, photographed workers and street children from Vienna and London to give a face to poverty and social disadvantage.

Based on the surveillance protocols of the British Secret Service the lecture examines the significance of Tudor-Hart’s life, both as a photographer of social injustice and as an unpaid secret agent but also reveals the destructive impact of surveillance in her life.
