Conversation: Selfies, Sousveillance, and Participatory Countersurveillance—Hasan Elahi and Annina Rüst

November 12, 2015, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6010

Artists Hasan Elahi and Annina Rüst consider the culture of pervasive surveillance and the control of information and privacy. In Tracking Transience, Elahi, the subject of an FBI investigation after the September 11 attacks, offers the FBI a continuously updated stream of information about his life and whereabouts. In works such as Tracenozier – Disinformation on Demand, Rüst explores participatory countersurveillance and the complicated relationship between the surveilling and the surveilled in networked communications.

 

Hasan Elahi is an interdisciplinary artist whose work examines issues of surveillance, citizenship, migration, transport, borders, and frontiers. He is currently Associate Professor of Art at the University of Maryland. Annina Rüst, a LACMA Art + Technology Lab alumna, is a Swiss artist whose works focus on political issues within tech culture, including gender representation, online privacy, and participatory surveillance. She is Assistant Professor of Transmedia at Syracuse University.

Every year LACMA provides free admission (and a free bus!) to take many disadvantaged and grateful folks to Andell Family Sundays!
