7:00pm: Screening & Panel
At: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, Brighton BN1 4AJ
A screening of art works developed in response to and in counteraction against surveillance technologies, will be followed by a panel discussing the consequences of surveillance and censorship on daily life – how do we respond to or engage with the consequences of censorship and surveillance?
As surveillance technologies become more ubiquitous – from CCTV to data-mining on websites to mobile phones to Google streetcar – it becomes all the 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 MediaShed. Manu Luksch is highly celebrated for her work investigating the use of surveillance technologies in artistic practice: http://www.ambienttv.net In particular her work Faceless has been internationally recognised and celebrated for its approach in exploring CCTV / surveillance technology in society.
