Salvatore Vitale: How to Secure a CountrySalvatore Vitale: How to Secure a Country

From Border Policing via Weather Forecast to Social Engineering: A Visual Study of 21st-Century Statehood

Published by Lars Müller Publishers.
Edited with text by Lars Willumeit. Text by Roland Bleiker, Philip Di Salvo, Jonas Hagmann.

In this hybrid artist's book, Switzerland-based artist Salvatore Vitale (born 1986) explores Switzerland's national security measures by focusing instructions, protocols and bureaucracies pertaining to security, which he visualizes in photographs, diagrams and graphic illustrations.

Switzerland, well known as one of the safest countries on earth and a prime example of efficiency and efficacy, has developed a culture based on protection, supported by the presence and production of national security. When in 2014 the Swiss voted in favor of an initiative "against massive immigration," Vitale, an immigrant living in Switzerland, decided to research this phenomenon in order to comprehend the origin for this constant need for security and how it became part of Swiss culture. The result is a case study that can be used to explain the global context for notions of security and the functioning of contemporary societies.
