Based on Tyler Hamilton’s autobiography The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs, this filmed performance is an artistic experiment  about monitoring and spying. It indirectly raises questions such as:  What may actually be at stake in the 21st century? How do we define truth today? And: who reads the following words, and how do they interpret them?

Discussion follows the screening with director Tobias Rosenbergerand Dieter Dettke, Adjunct Professor, Georgetown University. Dieter Dettke is a foreign and security policy specialist focusing on German and European security issues and Transatlantic relations. He teaches at Georgetown University. Tobias Rosenberger (b. 1980) is a German media artist who works at the crossroads of media art, visual arts, and performance. He has produced art works in Yemen, Spain, Mexico, India, and Ukraine. Since 2012 he has been based in China, where he teaches at the College of New Media Art, Shanghai Institute of Visual Art.
