with: Derek Howard
With works by IBM – Military Products Division, Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, Julika Rudelius, Di HU, B'Tselem Camera Project, Derek Howard, George Barber.
This programme highlights a variety of surveillance forms: the first computer-controlled, flying surveillance systems; East German agents trying to camouflage their equipment behind living room curtains; bored security personnel; artists spying on their neighbours; activists using the camera as a witness to governmental arbitrariness; and on to the most fearsome camera of all, the armed drone.
