DUBAI —East Wing presents "Surveillance.02", an exhibition of interdisciplinary artists, on Thursday, March 12. These artists' practices incorporate camera, satellite, and drone to question corporate and state surveillance, and energy production. Fueled by curiosity, anger and humor, these nervy artists are exploring wide-ranging methods and effects of surveillance and remix their findings as commentary. In particular, they are grappling with the human side of the global war on terror, exposing humanity’s permanent wounding of the environment, and engaging with state systems of power and control. At the center of the tensions and anxieties they pursue are the major tangles of convenience and privacy, individual and type, freedom and security.
