In her intermediate diploma, Eva Scholl focused on body politics and technologies of surveillance in the context of contemporary art discourse, where she engaged with Michel Foucault's and Paul B. Preciado's reflections on biopolitics. The exhibition 3x3x6, which represented the Taiwanese Pavilion at the 58th Biennale de Venezia in 2019, served as the main work of her analysis. One of the aims of the exhibition was to use digital strategies such as gender and race morphing to disrupt the tradition of colonial and anthropometric identification techniques, for example, Alphonse Bertillon's 19th century criminological photography or that of contemporary facial recognition technologies. She also included two other artistic positions by Julia Scher and Tabitha Rezaire to contextualize the exhibition, addressing the psychological and socio-political implications of today's pervasive surveillance culture, as well as the historical exploitation of the body, particularly the womb, which is still subject to control by the medicine-law-industry complex.
