Of Death and Lasers 
Triple Canopy + Jeremy Shaw 
July 29

Triple Canopy presents a briefing and interrogation regarding the activities of the International Necronautical Society's Berlin Inspectorate, and the group's claim that the city is the World Capital of Death. Editors and suspected agents will present intelligence on the INS's plan to recruit citizens and occupy a major cultural landmark as part of its efforts to "map, enter, colonise and, eventually, inhabit" the space of death. Then, on a different note, Berlin-based artist Jeremy Shaw will deliver a performative lecture on the history and future of laser technologies in and out of medical science, advanced weaponry, and visual culture. 

Triple Canopy works collectively with writers, artists, researchers and other collaborators on projects that deal critically with culture and politics, and the ways people engage them, both online and in the world at large. These investigations are realized in an online magazine as well as in public programs and print publications encompassing various fields and locales. We aim to present work and advance ideas informed by a multitude of disciplines and perspectives, and to disseminate them among a broad and diverse audience. Triple Canopy, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, was founded in late 2007; our first issue was published on March 17, 2008.
