Comedian, collector and self-confessed architecture nerd Tim Ross plays provocateur with John Watson, manager of Silverchair, historian Dr Sophie Leiberman and many others in this season of MCA on The Rocks. Come along and say goodbye to the Australian dream, question your right to privacy and get a glimpse of the future of music.Privacy! What Privacy?
It’s been less than ten years since the birth of social media and in those few short years many of us have completely surrendered our privacy. Perhaps we have always harboured the secret desire to share photos of our legs in a bikini at the beach but then again perhaps we have all been tricked?
As new technologies continue to challenge our social norms many artists working in the digital sphere are also faced with the challenges of redefining intellectual property in a world where sharing content is as easy as the click of a button. Join digital expert Ben Rennie and historian Dr Sophie Leiberman to ask: has our digital narcissism rendered our privacy redundant?
