An evening curated by Cecilia Wee focussing on surveillance and security with SpeedDataRadio opening the event, followed by the London premiere of Faceless, a film by London-based artist Manu Luksch, produced almost entirely from CCTV footage. SpeedDataRadio is a multiple roundtable discussion mixed down for live radio broadcast. No-one is able to hear everything. Participants can move between tables, members of the audience can join in. Subjects are assigned to each table to provoke and/or focus the conversation and we anticipate digression. The SpeedDataRadio format has previously appeared at ICA, as part of Radio Territories events (2006) and as part of the Self-Cancellation events with Gustav Metzger at Beaconsfield (2008).
