Negotiating between the private and the public is one of the predominant challenges for humanity in the 21st century. Staying connected to our digital identities requires us to pay with our private data, leaving us vulnerable to breaches of security and trust. When privacy is fast becoming a disappearing luxury, how do we safeguard our personal rights as people in today’s hyper-connected society? Do we value privacy or take it for granted? What is the impact of shifting boundaries of privacy on the collective mindset?
Curated by MOJOKO, this series of ten short digital works from ten international artists gathers a diverse array of perspectives exploring the meaning of privacy and the cost of surveillance.
