IN CONVERSATION WITH XU BING

Talk on surveillance, data collection and storytelling

What tools does cinema offer for exploring the complex relationships between data collection, surveillance and storytelling? In this talk, artist and director Xu Bing returns to the ICA following his 1997 Installation by Xu Bing show, to lead a discussion on framing of different kinds, exploring our contemporary landscapes of surveillance and his approach to negotiating the dynamics between filmmaker, film and audience; between artistic creation and market consumption.  

The talk will be hosted by Zach Blas, artist, filmmaker, writer, and lecturer in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London.
