Privacy is of everyone, right? How visible do we want to be? And how much control do we still have over the dissemination of our (visual) information? The current network society, in which we are inundated with new technological possibilities, offers opportunities and threats that demand our consideration. In collaboration with guest curator Jenny Smets, FOTODOK is organising the exhibition (No) Privacy. Come and form your own ideas on our privacy.

 

Whether it is the use of drones, security cameras, online information sharing or the increasing powers of the government to access our data, there is growing awareness that we are in danger of losing control of our privacy. (No) Privacy addresses this topical issue through the work of 16 national and international photographers and other visual artists. The exhibition is complemented by an extensive satellite programme, offering further opportunities for dialogue and reflection.
