Global Control and Censorship
Tallinn Art Hall
– 18 June 2017
Digital media and communication channels are a double-edged sword: on the one hand they open up previously unavailable possibilities of interaction, exchange and participation. On the other, they also conceal risks (not all of them known to users). Manipulation, surveillance and espionage are just a few examples of dangerous excesses that using modern technology can entail. In order to stimulate international discourse and critical thinking on this theme, the exhibition “Global Control and Censorship” brings together stances held by journalists, academics, activists, and artists from twenty different countries. An accompanying programme of workshops for children, young people and the wider public focuses on special aspects, such as the phenomenon of the “selfie” and the balancing act between convenience and security.
