Beyond Surveillance is a collection of art works developed in response to and in counteraction against surveillance technologies, with a panel of speakers discussing the consequences of and alternatives to surveillance in our daily life.
What are the consequences of surveillance on our daily lives? Is surveillance provoking a climate of self-censorship? Is a society without a paternalising infrastructure of control, such as surveillance and censorship, possible?
As surveillance technologies become more ubiquitous – from CCTV to data-mining on websites to mobile phones to Google streetcar – does it not become ever more important to consider the implications and to develop creative, radical responses, counteracting and reversing acts of surveillance?
Artist and curator Manu Luksch has selected several works which explore differing aspects of re-activism to surveillance technologies; selected artists include: David Valentine, Caspar Below, The Bureau of Inverse Technology and Michelle Teran.
Manu Luksch is highly celebrated for her work investigating the use of surveillance technologies in artistic practice: Ambient TV In particular her work ‘Faceless’ has been internationally recognised and celebrated for its approach in exploring CCTV / surveillance technology in society.
