a critical forum on surveillance and social control  
flow / capture / control / rupture

Surveillance is now a part of our everyday lives not necessarily in the intimidating Big Brother style, but in a more mundane and dispersed way. We are constantly being recorded and analysed and data about our behaviour is being put in to databases and shared around without our informed consent or control.

CITY STATE was a public event that discussed the increasing levels of surveillance and social control in our society and to explore possible interventions and counter surveillance strategies available to us.

The event was held in Sydney and Melbourne during July 2002.

We also produced a Reader for CityState 2002. Check details about that here.
