East Wing presents Surveillance.02, an exhibition of interdisciplinary artists whose practices incorporate camera, satellite, and drone to question corporate and state surveillance, and energy production. Fueled by curiosity, anger, and humor, these nervy artists are exploring wide-ranging methods and effects of surveillance, and remixing their findings as commentary. In particular, they are grappling with the human side of the global war on terror, exposing humanity’s permanent wounding of the environment, and engaging with state systems of power and control. At the center of the tensions and anxieties they pursue are the major tangles of convenience & privacy, individual & type, freedom & security.

The exhibition includes the premiere of a new audiovisual work by UK Artist Edmund Clark, "Dulce et Decorum Est: Virtue Unmann'd' developed in collaboration with Monica Alcazar- Duarte.

and a special screening of Stéphane Degoutin and Gwenola Wagon's 'World Brain', a full-length film that operates as a hybrid of documentary, fiction, and how-to guide by assembling elements of science and folklore. Among the many subjects investigated are: data farms, the collective intelligence of kittens, high-frequency trading, and the law of the jungle according to Wikipedia. Special Screening on Tuesday 24 March at 19:00 (admission free - seating limited to book email: info@east-wing.org).
