SENSITIVE DATA – THE ART OF SURVEILLANCE

BILINGUAL CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOPS CURATED BY TOBI MÜLLER AND SARAH HARRISON / JANUARY 20 – 22, KAMMER 1/2/3

Since Edward Snowden blew the whistle that awakened the world to the magnitude of surveillance, has anything changed? Most people surf the web without protecting their profiles and do not have time to read through reams of terms and conditions before passing on their data to third parties. And in the hubbub of Internet traffic, intelligence agencies run the risk of missing the whisperings of real bombmakers. Not everything has stayed the same. Bestsellers advise people to be cautious in the digital world; the Black Lives Matter movement uses CCTV cameras as a defence against police violence; and in India, the government has resisted a social network. In Germany, in the meantime, a discussion has sprung up about the role of the secret service. And in the wake of the US presidential election, there has been a wide-ranging debate over the role of leaked emails. In the swirling vortex of the present, this international conference, curated by Tobi Müller and Sarah Harrison (Wikileaks), sheds light on the history of privacy and public life. Before we complain about all those who expose themselves on the Internet, we should not repress the desire to be seen. Because one thing is certain: Someone is always watching us. Perhaps it’s you?
