The Art of Eavesdropping

From Saturday Morning, 10:30 am on 17 August 2019

A new exhibition at Wellington's City Gallery uses art to explore the many ways we're being eavesdropped on. The show examines the diverse technologies and contexts involved (including political surveillance and detention) and questions our growing acceptance of being snooped on. It features works by international artists including Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Fayen d'Evie and Jen Bervin, and the Manus Recording Project Collective. Kim will talk to curators James Parker from Melbourne Law School and Joel Stern from Liquid Architecture.
