Nazi UFO's - the iPod drawings

As exhibited at TotalKunst Gallery for the Edinburgh Art Festival 2010: iPod paintings of the internet conspiracy theory “photographic evidence” (and a few obvious fakes) for the project “Considering Silesia” by Anglo-German painter Mik Godley.

A simple internet exploration of his German roots unearthed a mass of “evidence” and theories about the Silesian mountain overlooking his mother’s birthplace. In particular he was fascinated by Albert
Speer’s monumental secret project codenamed “Der Riese” (the Giant) tunnelled miles of shafts, cavernous weapons factories, and even an underground town, that eventually became a graveyard for
28,000 slave labourers.

And what were the Nazis supposed to be building there? A development of what the Allied pilots called “Foo Fighters”: new and radical types of aircraft meant to save Hitler’s war – the Haunebu
flying saucers.
