Every breath you take
The focus of the exhibition is on three different themes bound by their ties to current events and filtered by the sensitivity of three young contemporary artists.
In a historical period in which democracy looks more like demagogy, carrying on its political campaigns through social networks (see the Cambridge Analityca case or the way in which Facebook is used by the current president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte), it’s important to reflect on the political dynamics that control our governments which seem to systematically exclude citizens from their decisions while giving them an illusion of power through social media.
In the same way, a good knowledge of some existing technologies and their public and military use could increase the attention on the management of our data and more attention on the device to which we delegate our life everyday. An illegal jammer that can be easily bought on the internet, for instance, is far less dangerous and powerful than a jammer used for strategic-military purposes like interceptions and radar interferences.
