Museum für Fotografie - Watching You, Watching Me. A Photographic Response to Surveillance

What right do governments, corporations, and individuals have to collect and retain information on your daily communications? What tools have been used to monitor your activities? As governments and corporations around the world expand their efforts to track the communications and activities of millions of people, this not only threatens our right to privacy, but also opens the door for information to be collected and used in ways that are repressive, discriminatory, and chill freedom of speech and expression.
It is in this context of massive information gathering that Watching You, Watching Me - the 22nd installment of the Open Society Foundations’ Moving Walls exhibition - explores how photography can be both an instrument of surveillance and a tool to expose and challenge its negative impact.
 
The exhibition will be on view until July 2, 2017
