The Model Citizen

This multi-media group exhibition ‘investigates the way humans map and make sense of the world, and how they form imagined communities’. Audiences are introduced to micro lenses of surveillance and audit culture, the guise of the celebrity citizen and the bio-power of the viral robot citizen, the performative monotony of routine, as well as the omnipresent noise of layered news readings in an attempt to transform the modern agora and what defines who is and is not a ‘model citizen’.
