"Privacy is a bourgeois fantasy": Order it!
We need a radical rethinking of how we discuss privacy. As our lives are exposed on Google, Facebook and Twitter, the dissolution of privacy shatters personal and social securities. This loss of control can be embraced and molded into productive, emancipating “post-private technologies of the self” (Ganz), making all of us happier. Post-privacy as a social theory hits a raw nerve in Germany because of its totalitarian past. Jeff Jarvis observed when Google Streetview created an outrage in the German media: “Germans love going naked to mixed saunas and letting complete strangers take an intimate look, but when it comes to the Internet, the buck stops there.” Is surrendering to “full-frontal data nudity” a sign of de-solidarity and apolitical behavior? Is post-privacy only an option for the privileged? Is privacy a necessary means of self-defense against certain powers?

monochrom is an art-technology-philosophy group having its seat in Vienna and Zeta Draconis. monochrom is an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science, context hacking and political activism. Our mission is conducted everywhere, but first and foremost in culture-archeological digs into the seats (and pockets) of ideology and entertainment. monochrom has existed in this (and almost every other) form since 1993.
