publication: Aerial Reconnaissance Berlin

Aerial Reconnaissance operations, led by INS Chief of Propaganda (Archiving and Epistemological Critique) Anthony Auerbach, were focused on the identification and surveillance of sites of erasure, as specified: ‘locations where no trace can be found of incidents or persons of interest to the INS; where there is evidence of attempts to cover or erase the traces of incidents or persons; where there is evidence of attempts to conceal the erasure.’ Such sites may frequently be recognised by the presence of monumental architecture, memorial plaques and the like. INS Chief Obituary Reviewer (COR) Melissa McCarthy joined the mission to conduct preliminary investigations concerning circulation and transit systems, tracing the historical and physical vectors and networks inscribed in the city. INS General Secretary Tom McCarthy and Inke Arns carried out an Inspection of the Inspectorate: fieldworkers Auerbach and McCarthy delivered reports in a public briefing at Sparwasser HQ. (2005)
