Global Control and Censorship Exhibition

July 13, 2018

The NATIONAL LIBRARY OF LATVIA, Mūkusalas iela 3, Riga
September 13 – October 21, 2018
 
 
The exhibition is based on the collaboration with a network of scientists, journalists, activists, and artists in some twenty countries around the world, and in cooperation with expert organizations such as the German PEN Center, the Chaos Computer Club, Reporters Without Borders, and such platforms as netzpolitik.orgdigitalcourage.de, WikiLeaks, and others. The exhibition’s aim is to expand public debate about the ever-present surveillance and censorship methods, which is an urgent priority not only due to constant new reports in the media, but especially because of the extensive obstruction of the investigation of these practices.
