WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 29, 5 p.m.
WHERE: Campbell Hall, Room 160

Princeton University professor Thomas Y. Levin will speak about works by artists who are interested in the practices, technologies, and experience of surveillance. His lecture is based on an exhibition, "CTRL [SPACE]: Rhetorics of Surveillance from Bentham to Big Brother," curated by Levin and currently on view at the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, Germany. Levin's presentation will include a screening of a video, "In the Event of Amnesia the City Will Recall," by the performance artist Denis Beaubois.

Levin is a prominent scholar of cultural theory and history of the media. He has written extensively on Weimar cinema, the origins of synthetic sound, and the work of the Situationist International, a group of European avant-garde artists and political radicals who were active from 1957 to 1971.
