AboutArtists: Lead artists: Camilla Brueton, Deej Fabyc, Joanna Callaghan and Paula Roush
Description: The Kinship International Strategy on Surveillance and Suppression is a five-part exhibition project directed and facilitated by Camilla Brueton, Joanna Callaghan, Deej Fabyc and Paula Roush with guest artists, exploring notions of surveillance and suppression in contemporary society. The five elements to the show include a group exhibition, video screening programme, KISSS seminar, re-presentation of the KISSS archive and web presence through the KISSS website and social network. The work responds to the enmeshed control and resistance that permeates everyday life and brings together a repository of tactics and actions that have arisen in artists' works in reaction to these psychosocial forces.
