Renée Goethijn & Dries Gijsels - No Use For Binoculars

maa 12/10/2015 > vri 30/10/2015

A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves; an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought. And that’s a problem because privacy matters; privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be. – Edward Snowden

In No Use For Binoculars, Dries Gijsels and Renée Goethijn (together with Nona Buhrs, Femke Stallaert and Tomas Pevenage) examine the value of the hidden, in an era of continuously increasing transparency. Isn’t it just important that we, people, have some things to hide? Or is society evolving to one where everything is open and visible, where we’re overwhelmed with information, but there’s no mystery or poetry left? Are we ever alone? Or are we perhaps even more alone than ever?
