Rue Ravensteinstraat 23, 1000 Brussels, Belgium
Watching You, Watching Me explores the intersection between photography and surveillance. Employing a dynamic range of approaches — from documentary to conceptual practice, from appropriation to street art — these 10 artists provide a satellite-to-street view of the ways in which surveillance culture blurs the boundaries between the private and public realm.

The exhibition looks into how photography can be both an instrument of surveillance and a tool to expose and challenge its negative impact. In tackling the inherent difficulty of visualizing something that is meant to be both omnipresent and covert — seemingly everywhere and nowhere at the same time — the artists in this exhibition employ a dynamic range of approaches.

Curators: Stuart Alexander, Susan Meiselasz, Yukiko Yamagata

Free entrance
Organized by: Open Society Foundations — New York; In cooperation with BOZAR and Privacy Salon


OPENING: 25 JANUARY — 19:00 > 20:30

For the opening two of the artists of Watching You, Watching Me
— Julian Roeder and Mari Bastashevski — will each host a roundtable discussion with maximum 10 participants from different disciplines and sectors. Visitors to the expo can walk by, listen in and stay or move on.

The starting point are the artworks presented by the artists. The larger topic being the fact that governments and corporations around the world track communications and actions of citizens, of millions of people. Justified? Legal? Thanks to the personal risks and sacrifices of Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden the repressive and discriminatory ways of operating by — even democratic — governments, have been laid bare. Our right to privacy is threatened, our freedom of speech and expression suppressed.

Free entrance
Proposed by STAL — Sciences, Technologies, Arts, Lab — an initiative of BOZAR, VUB and ULB
