PRIVATE focuses on the social and political ramification of the (un)written laws of digitization, privatization and the encoding of the body. Why does the PRIVATE matter? Who is eavesdropping on “our” privacy and to what extend is the body a dispensable instrument in our contemporary society? How do we deal with the increasingly optic gaze of multinationals, governments and systems towards our realities or our bodies?

This evening is an attempt to bring in an intimate setting a variety of artistic voices together that offer us tactics, resistance, disturbance and transgression in an era where privacy or the private is increasingly under surveillance across the globe.
