Surveilance Blind at the Goethe-Institut: September 17th - December 3rd
As technology has evolved, so have our fundamental ways of understanding the world. Data and information flows around us and is used to track our consumer habits, shape our identities, and mediate our relationships to our nation states. We are more connected than ever through online platforms and digital devices, and simultaneously the “data shadows” that we create reveal more about us to the world than we realize. Who controls and makes use of the information generated by our sharing society is a question being challenged and contested worldwide. The artists in this exhibition investigate the paradox of these connections, probing our relationship to data collection and interpretation. Works by AnnieLaurie Erickson (New Orleans, LA, USA), Nate Larson (Baltimore, MD, USA), Marni Shindelman (Athens, GA, USA), Simon Menner (Berlin, Germany), Jens Sundheim (Dortmund, Germany) and John Vigg (Asbury Park, NJ, USA).
