I'm just back from the opening and related symposium for Sorting Daemons: Art, Surveillance Regimes and Social Control at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario. Curators Jan Allen and Sarah E.K. Smith brought together a judicious selection of recent work focused on issues around surveillance (the artists are Brenda Goldstein, Antonia Hirsch, David Kemp, Tran T. Kim-Trang, Germaine Koh and Ian Verchere, Arnold Koroshegyi, Ruthann Lee, Michael Lewis, Jill Magid, Walid Ra’ad; Kathleen Ritter, David Rokeby, Tom Sherman, Cheryl Sourkes and John Watt). The symposium Sorting Daemons, presented in conjunction with the Queen's University Sociology Department's Centre for Surveillance Studies, was a richly thought-provoking dive into issues of self-surveillance, cultures of control, and such.
