Watching You, Watching Me
A Photographic Response to Surveillance
Date: 16.02.17 – 02.07.17
Venue: Museum für Fotografie
Big brother, big data, and privacy rights are on everyone’s minds right now. In keeping with the turbulent times, this exhibition questions the role that photography plays in issues of privacy and fundamental rights. While photography is often used as a monitoring tool, it can also be used in subversive ways to challenge institutions of surveillance. Watching You, Watching Me features ten artists with different approaches, each provoking us to consider the ways in which we are being monitored and what the consequences of surveillance are.
The opening is on February 16th from 19:00, and the exhibition is open until July 2nd.
