La vie quotidienne sous contrôle
Presentation of the next thematic week: Daily life under control.
Today in Belgium, informations about every individual are stored in an average of 600 different databases. A huge amount of daily operations are leaving an electronic trace. Taken in isolation, these recordings may appear benign. The users of the different electronic services are
told they are useful and necessaries. But considered globally, they represent a blattant infringement to the right that garanties the respect for private life garanteed by the European Convention of human rights.

MéTAmorphoZ (Natalia de Mello, Valérie Cordy)

With the project Doppelgänger, the collective MéTAmorphoZ focuses on the thematic of the electronic double(duplicate, twin) in a society of control and surveillance. « Our electronic identity, symbol of this new society of control, duplicates our organic and social identity. But this legal obligation to be assigned a unique, stable and unforgeable identity isn’t, in the end, a danger for our fundamental freedom to claim identitites which are irreducibly multiple for each of us?
