“Datavaillance,” Facebook and CCTV – it sometimes seems that we live in a world of total observation. Whether walking the streets of London (or many other major cities) or navigating the virtual environment of the internet, most of our movements and actions are potentially open to inspection and evaluation by others. Perhaps the epithets “Orwellian” and “panoptical” – habitually applied to describe our experience of the present – are not entirely unwarranted.

Unter anderem werden Chris Williams, James Kneale und ich Vorträge halten. Ab sofort und bis zum 30.9. kann man sich auf der Website anmelden.
