Euro-Vision Workshop

“To be ruled is to be kept an eye on, inspected, spied on, regulated, indoctrinated, sermonized, listed and checked off, estimated, appraised, censured, ordered about... To be ruled is at every operation, transaction, movement, to be noted, registered, counted, priced, admonished, prevented, reformed, redressed, corrected.”
P.-J. Proudhon, "Q’est-ce que c'est la propriété?”quoted in Daniel Guérin, Anarchism: From Theory to Practice, trans. Maty Klopper (New York: Monthly Review Press, 1970:15-16)

How do certain technologies shape the emergence and evolution of migrant flows, and consequently modes of governance and of seeing? Join FRAUD and Dr Btihaj Ajana to investigate the gaze offered by the patterns drawn from economic, social and humanitarian data. Together through a de-collage we will critically chart some of the affective modes of power entangled in surveillance technology and migrant flows. Automated pattern recognition affords (arguably) remote control and execution upon migrant bodies by performing modes of (bio)power, helping formulate and endorse novel research, structuring international stewardship, and the administration of human rights. What are the political, aesthetic and technosocial operations of externalised European border systems in the Gibraltar area?
