Symposium: Surveillance & Privacy: Art, Law, and Social Practice

Thursday, November 20, 2014, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Henry Auditorium,Kane Hall, University of Washington Campus
FREE

Henry Art Gallery, in collaboration with the Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media, will host Surveillance & Privacy: Art, Law, and Social Practice, a multi-day symposium focusing on the response of artists and cultural institutions to issues related to privacy and surveillance. Examining historical attitudes, contemporary perspectives, and prognostications about the future of privacy, the symposium will explore how changes in technology, law, and social practices intermingle and impact public perceptions and cultural behavior. Among the works featured for analysis during the symposium is the Henry’s interactive art installation Sanctum, created by UW professors and artists James Coupe and Juan Pampin and installed on the museum’s façade.

In addition to project-focused sessions and panel discussions (November 22, Henry Auditorium), the symposium will feature evening lectures by Marc Rotenberg (November 20, Kane Hall) and Edward Shanken (November 21, Henry Auditorium). There will also be a pre-conference lecture co-sponsored by the UW Tech Policy Lab with author and activist Cory Doctorow (October 25, Kane Hall).

The Henry gratefully acknowledges generous support from the Simpson Center for the Humanities for this program.
