Digital Labor

Creative Time Summit: Art in the Age of Digital Surveillance

Sat, November 15
02:00 PM - 04:10 PM
Orozco Room (712)
66 West 12th Street, 7th Floor

Remote Panel & Local

At the intersection of two important events – Creative Time’s Summit in Stockholm and The New School’s Digital Labor: Sweatshops, Picket Lines, and Barricades – this panel highlights shared concerns and interests. The panels emphasize the important ways the arts and artists are both challenging and are implicated in current labor practices in the digital realm.

Live streamed as well as documented panels from the Summit in Sweden are supplemented with discussions by Digital Labor participants, in a unique, cross-Atlantic pooling of creative, intellectual and scholarly talents. In New York, #DL14 presenters attend, reflect, and respond to a Summit panel, emphasizing the immediacy of these sociopolitical issues to push the conversation further. 

Art in the Age of Digital Surveillance
In this section, we explore “the age of surveillance” and its impact today, particularly the recent revelations of NSA surveillance in the United States and the self-surveilling that has been woven into the global fabric of contemporary living. As private and public become deeply intertwined, their political and personal implications grow increasingly conflated.
