Discovering the Unmonitored Underground City

Workshop, in English, Complexe Desjardins, 21 February 2009

Bill Brown leads participants on a guided tour through Montréal’s underground city, pointing out the locations of surveillance cameras and discussing the role of surveillance in public space. Brown is a member of Surveillance Camera Players, a New York City-based group that maps surveillance cameras in urban spaces.

In conjunction with the exhibition Actions: What You Can Do With the City (2008), the CCA hosts a series of workshops devoted to public actions in urban environments and their impact on contemporary society.
