The exhibition GLOBAL CONTROL AND CENSORSHIP investigates the inexorable penetration of surveillance and censorship into our everyday lives. It is based on collaboration with ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe and with the Arbeitsgruppe Netzpolitik at the Institute of Political Science of Heidelberg University and the Kompetenzzentrum für angewandte Sicherheitstechnologie (KASTEL) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). This exhibition owes a great debt of thanks to all the whistle-blowers who had and still have the courage to reveal the undemocratic practices of states and commercial enterprises to the general public.
The exhibition is organised by the Goethe-Institut Riga and RIXC (The Center for New Media Culture in Riga) at the National Library of Latvia. It is curated by Bernhard Serexhe and Lívia Nolasco-Rózsás.
