Dissolving Borders: Art, Counter Surveillance and Technology
Wodiczko combines the use of new technologies with close attention to social and political marginalisation. With personal commitment, the artist tries to disclose lives and stories that would otherwise go untold, creating common platforms. His attention is often focused on monuments and historical buildings, which are critically reinterpreted in their historical meaning and then turned into places for meeting and dialogue.
