The event title was lifted from one of Treister’s most recent projects, which she will be discussing as part of the talk, as well as revisiting HEXEN 2.0, a major project she worked on from 2009 to 2011 accumulating information that tracks intelligence gathering increases in the Web 2.0 era.
From that, it’s not a far leap to a discussion about the government and, necessarily, the military’s role in the development (and direction) of the internet, which Treister’s work has been exploring since her days as a digital and web-based art pioneer in the 90s.
See the Chisenhale Gallery event page for details. **
