Drone Vision in Sweden: panel discussion with artists and activists

How do drones effect how we see and what we know? What does the asymmetry of drone vision mean for those living under drone surveillance and what are the consequences of drone technologies in the context of Sweden? On the occasion of the Drone Vision: Warfare, Surveillance, Protest exhibition at Hasselblad Center, the Hasselblad Foundation and Valand Academy, Gothenburg University presents an afternoon forum with artists, researchers and activists to explore the effects of drone technologies on political protest and war.

The panel discussion is a part of a two-day seminar event in collaboration with the Gothenburg Art Museum and the Gothenburg City Library. With support from the Swedish Art Council, Gothenburg city and The Olof Palme Memorial Fund.
