(Dis)appearance Online2021

The internet functions as a vast and ever expanding archive of images, if it isn’t online, it 
may as well not exist. But large amounts of information, including visual information, is
also continuously expunged from the net. What happens to those exiled images? 
(Dis)appearance Online traces the status of key historical images from national archives 
in Iraq, Syria and Jordan and their appearance, disappearance and non-appearance online, 
in both public and commercial image banks. The work stands as an accompaniment and a 
post-script to my 2012 work, Getty vs. Ghana.
