Now that global communication also means global control, that disciplinary methods are applied to the community in the name of the “war of terror”, that the sharing born out of the Internet and social networks has dismantled our privacy, the word prison takes on very new meanings.
26 artists and over 50 works present prison as a metaphor for the contemporary world and the contemporary world as a metaphor for prison: technological, hyperconnected, shared and increasingly controlled
The exponential development of digital technologies, the advent of the social networks and the use of Big Data have progressively and inexorably changed our society and we are witnessing the collapse of the philosophies of social and urban sharing and the establishment of a new regime that in the name of security is stripping us, with our consent, of every intimate and personal space.
