Publication

 

Close Watch is accompanied by a publication published by Mousse Publishing. It encapsulates Pilvi Takala’s extensive preparation and field research that informed the work’s development. Featuring notes, interviews with her former colleagues, as well as a curatorial essay by Christina Li, the book further opens up the complexities around private security as both a concept and an industry.
