The Model Citizen

Published by: RMIT Gallery | 11-Jan-2019
The Model Citizen takes on the challenge of activating the role that art can play in modelling forms of contemporary citizenship. In this interactive exhibition attendees will meet the micro lenses of surveillance and audit culture, the algorithm of benign search engines, the ghostly noise of a thousand newsreaders speaking all at once, and the hopeful threads and fibres of participatory culture.
