Description

In July 2005, Coco Fusco took a course to learn techniques about extracting information from captured prisoners. Led by former United States military interrogators, Fusco and six other women filmed the workshop depicting their training. The video shows the process of being a prisoner of war—being ambushed, captured, strip searched, thrown in a pen and subjected to several interrogations. Afterwards, the tactics were analyzed and the group was taught how to perform the actions done to them onto others.
