This publication draws on the documents compiled by the photographer and political activist Miklós Klaus Rózsa (1954) from 1971 to 1989, consisting of an assortment of photographs taken by Rózsa as well as state security files on Rózsa, as reported by the Federal Police, the Cantonal Police, and the Zurich Police Department. Christof Nüssli and Christoph Oeschger juxtapose the text produced by the state and the images produced by the monitored person. The collage of these sources produces new images that reveal the history of a politically agitated time in Switzerland. The montage brings the conflict between Rózsa’s images and the State Security texts to light. Observation and surveillance encounter one another.
