Screening of artists' video followed by panel discussing the impact of surveillance on our daily lives

About

videoclub and Index on Censorship present: BEYOND SURVEILLANCE curated by Manu Luksch A screening 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. Mapping CCTV What are the consequences of surveillance on our daily lives? Is surveillance provoking a climate of self-censorship? Is a society without a paternalistic 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. Panel of speakers: - Caspar Below — artist - Julia Farrington — Head of Arts at Index on Censorship - Manu Luksch — ambientTV.NET / artist - David Valentine — artist 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.
