On January 25th and 26th at Project Arts Centre, Dublin, the Goethe-Institut Irland presents two events that consider and explore data privacy in our digital age.

On Wednesday January 25th, the Goethe-Institut and Connect the Dots present “Under Surveillance”, a dinner and discussion about digital information, data protection and identity.

Under Surveillance Connect The Dots

Over a long table dinner in The Cube in Project Arts Centre, people from all backgrounds and different interests  – from artists to politicians to data analysts to leaders of tech companies to academics – including Renate Samson, Chief Executive of Big Brother Watch; Eamon Ryan, Green Party leader; Edward McDonnell, Director of CeADAR Centre for Applied Data Analytics; and journalist Una Mullally – discuss this incredibly important and increasingly complex topic.

Zeitgeist at The CubeThe following evening, Thursday January 26th, Turkish artist Nezaket Ekici presents the performance / installation Zeitgeist, which has been realised in Santa Monica (2006), Istanbul (2006), Herford (2010), and Stuttgart (2011). Prior to her gallery performance, the artist will run through Dublin with a camera, filming the people and the city, moving like a living security camera throughout Dublin. In Project Arts Centre’s The Cube, you’ll see this marathon film, and next to it, a second projection showing a live close-up of the artist’s face, who runs on the spot, in front of her film.

Presented as part of a collaboration between Digital Rights Ireland and the Goethe-Institut Irland:
