11. - 17.Aug.14 ROSIA MONTANA [Romania]: FânFest
FânFest is the biggest multi-art activist festival in Romania which started with a community’s struggle to protect their land and inspired a generation. It kickstarted Europe’s one of the fastest growing and most vibrant environmental movement in the last decade in Eastern Europe. At this year's festival, FACELESS by Manu Luksch will be shown (english with Romanian subtitles).
12. - 16.Jun.14 LONDON: Ghost on the Wire
Group exhibition at Bermondsey Project Space, featuring artists from the United Kingdom, Singapore and beyond, and curated by Gavin Maughfling and Suzanne de Emmony:
"We have invited film-makers, painters, installation and sound artists, photographers, writers and choreographers and others to respond to our theme, which is communication: how we use, adapt and subvert technologies to communicate across time and space, and perhaps how we are in turn shaped by our use of these innovations."
04.Jun.14 NAMUR [BE]: Caméras de Surveillance et Vie Privee
En collaboration avec le Centre de recherche en Information, Droit et Société de l’Université de Namur (CRIDS), Barricade vous propose de réagir au projet PTZ-Pilot, dont l’objectif est de développer des moyens techniques permettant « le pilotage automatique de caméras motorisées pour l’observation détaillée de personnes ou de scènes ».
En substance, ce projet financé par la Région wallonne permettrait de passer de la supervision de lieux vers l’observation systématique de personnes déterminées sur base de comportement considérés comme étant «suspects» ou «anormaux».
Le CRIDS a notamment été chargé, par la Région, de recueillir les réactions de la société civile face au PTZ-Pilot. Puisqu’on nous y invite, n’hésitons pas!
La soirée sera animée par les chercheurs Nathalie Grandjean (philosophe), Perrine Vanmeerbeek (anthropologue) et Franck Dumortier (juriste).
Le débat sera précédé par la projection du film Faceless, de Manu Luksch (50 minutes).
