Security and Surveillance

Creators from all over the world, each with a unique political background, have come together to understand their local politics and local design. Satellite 2022 specifically seeks to critique organized security and informational surveillance in our communities. The 21st century world has a very different idea about what security means, who it is provided by and why ‘safety’ has become more and more convoluted than it was ever meant to be. Security is about trust, and there is very little of it left in organized armed forces provided by States. The idea of security, surveillance and the right to self-determination have become deeply and dangerously embroiled with economic politics of the world. The need for safety has also expanded to virtual space and we have barely begun to understand what those two words in conjunction will mean.

For Satellite 2022, participants from the United States, Pakistan, Taiwan, Italy, China, and Kashmir are focusing on their regional and communal politics.
