Gordon H. Brown Lecture: Anthony Byrt on Simon Denny

19 November 2019

Anthony Byrt's lecture 'Simon Denny's Surveilism: An Accelerationist Art for Accelerated Times' will look at Simon Denny's most significant recent projects, including Secret Power (2015), The Founder's Paradox (2017), and Mine (2019). Byrt will discuss the ways Denny's work examines the growing and pervasive impact of ‘surveillance capitalism’ on our lives and how Denny and a handful of his contemporaries internationally are deploying monsters and the grotesque to create new visions of how digital technologies are reshaping the world around us.

Followed by refreshments.

In partnership with Victoria University of Wellington.
