    Earlier this year, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS), the effective ruler of Saudi Arabia, went on a diplomatic tour of the United Kingdom and the United States. His aim was to rebrand the Saudi monarchy as an enlightened, reforming institution, and to attract the Western investment that his country desperately needs if it is to end its dependence on oil. On his trip, MBS not only shook hands with Donald Trump and Theresa May, but also met with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and Disney CEO Bob Iger. Media coverage, on the whole, was credulously positive, as the supposed young reformer was held up as the new bright hope for Saudi Arabia, and perhaps for the Middle East itself. – 今年早些时候,沙特阿拉伯的有效统治者穆罕默德·本·萨尔曼王储(MBS)对英国和美国进行了外交访问。他的目标是重塑沙特君主制为一个开明的、改革的机构,并吸引西方投资,如果沙特要结束对石油的依赖,西方国家就迫切需要这些投资。在访问期间,MBS不仅与唐纳德·特朗普和特丽莎·梅握手,还与Facebook的马克·扎克伯格、演员德韦恩·约翰逊、迪斯尼的CEO鲍勃·伊格尔会面。总的来说,媒体报道是令人信服的积极的,因为这位所谓的年轻改革者被视作沙特阿拉伯,或许还有中东的新希望。

    In Stephen Spielberg’s noir-sci-fi film Minority Report (2002), Tom Cruise plays a cop in the Washington DC police precrime division. Precrime, meaning, Cruise sees offences before they happen and rushes to stop the action prior to it taking place. The intel is received from three ‘precognitives’ – mutants who foresee the crimes – and their knowledge is transmitted to Cruise via a computer with a huge glass screen. Cruise’s performance involves his cop character conducting these images across this futuristic user interface, putting on special gloves that allow him to shift between images produced by the precogs, explore and zoom in on the background to see a mailbox, or a clock on the wall, and know the time and place where violence is about to happen. The images and short videos are grainy and poor, to communicate the fact that these are reflections of the future, but Cruise still gets to magnify them, or close in, and get all the information he needs. – 在斯蒂芬·斯皮尔伯格(Stephen Spielberg)的黑色科幻电影《少数族裔报告》(2002)中,汤姆·克鲁斯(Tom Cruise)在华盛顿警察局预犯罪分局扮演一名警察。先见之明,意味着,克鲁斯看到犯罪发生之前,并急于停止行动之前发生。英特尔是从三个“预知者”——预知犯罪的突变体——那里收到的,他们的知识通过一个带有巨大玻璃屏幕的计算机传送给克鲁斯。克鲁斯的表演包括他的警察角色在这个未来派的用户界面上处理这些图像,戴上特殊的手套,允许他在由预告片产生的图像之间切换,在背景中探索和放大以查看邮箱或墙上的时钟,并了解Tim。E和暴力即将发生的地方。这些图像和短片很粗糙,不足以说明这些是未来的反映,但是克鲁斯仍然可以放大它们,或者接近它们,并获得他所需要的所有信息。

    Who are photographs for? Who are photographs by? Increasingly, the answer to both questions is, more or less, machine: images are captured by autonomous, or semi-autonomous devices in the act of gathering data for artificial intelligences. – 照片是给谁的?照片是谁的?这两个问题的答案或多或少地越来越多地是机器:图像是由自主或半自主设备在为人工智能收集数据时捕获的。

    Frederick Wiseman’s new documentary, Monrovia, Indiana (2018) opens with a series of bucolic shots of rural Americana before moving inside to a meeting of a small church group. ‘Remember,’ a middle-aged man wearing a cross tells those gathered, ‘when He started this whole thing, everything was perfect. We messed it up. We brought the tribulations.’ – 弗雷德里克·怀斯曼的新纪录片《印第安纳州蒙罗维亚》(2018)以美国乡村的一系列田园风光开场,然后进入一个小型教会团体的会议。“记住,”一个背着十字架的中年人告诉那些聚集在一起的人,“当他开始这一切时,一切都很完美。”我们把事情搞糟了。我们带来了苦难。

    Vast sky overhead, plains stretching toward the horizon – O, pioneers! For centuries, in the US, a myth of the West has been a cudgel to beat onward a national (and nationalist) idea of prosperity and freedom, wrested in blood. It’s a fairy tale largely told through popular films, television programmes and novels. In these stories, cowboys and homesteaders embody a loner ideal of rugged individualism inextricably linked to a surging free market, striking gold for Christ in the Mormon State of Deseret. But, against this perception of a boundless US interior, the actual political history of the Plains offers up countless examples of the limits capitalism has placed on the region and its political imagination. Given that much of this history plays almost no part in our popular images of the West, we might turn to recent and newly restored art and, in particular, film and photography, for images that re-assert the primacy of the working class in this region. These works also resist the melancholy that has been pervasive in the leftist retelling of the rise and fall of the US labour movement. There are two histories of the region – a landscape conjoined in desert, plains, beaches and old-growth forest, stretching west of the Mississippi to the glinting Pacific and curtailed only by the artificial borders with Canada and Mexico. First, one of so-called manifest destiny; second, one of work. – 浩瀚的天际,平原向地平线延伸—-O,拓荒者!几个世纪以来,在美国,西方的神话一直是一根棍子,用来打败在鲜血中挣扎的民族(以及民族主义者)的繁荣和自由观念。这是一个童话故事,主要通过流行的电影、电视节目和小说来讲述。在这些故事中,牛仔和家园主们体现了一种孤独的理想,这种理想与激增的自由市场密不可分,在摩门教的笛斯特州为基督敲出金牌。但是,与这种认为美国内陆无边无际的观点相反,大平原的实际政治历史提供了无数的例子,说明资本主义对该地区及其政治想象力的限制。鉴于这段历史中的大部分几乎不在我们对西方流行的印象中扮演任何角色,我们可能会转向最近和新近恢复的艺术,尤其是电影和摄影,来寻找那些重申该地区工人阶级首要地位的图像。这些作品也抵御了美国劳工运动兴衰的左翼复述中弥漫的忧郁情绪。这个地区有两段历史——沙漠、平原、海滩和古老的森林交织在一起,从密西西比州西部一直延伸到闪烁的太平洋,只因与加拿大和墨西哥的人工边界而受到限制。首先,一个所谓的命运;第二,一个工作。
