Security Paranoia in the World-Info-Sphere - Control Anxiety
Control Anxiety presents a wide-screen view of security and control technologies and techniques. The panel maps the terrain of control technology and the institutional structures that guide its development. Beyond the obvious and visible forms of electronic surveillance such as camera surveillance and biometric scanning devices, the panel will look at more hidden forms of control technology: sophisticated intelligence techniques, institutional norms and standards, territorial models, control institutions, data-analysis and data-mining, transnational regulatory frameworks, and bio-technological engineering. The primary aim of the panel is to map this terrain where new realities are produced in the service of specific ideological, political and economical agenda’s.
