Embedded Art

Art in the Name of Security (+DVD)

As the waves of international terrorism reach vital organs all over the world at the beginning of the 21st Century, new threats curtail the dream of a peaceful, undivided and secure world. Indeed, everything that can be performed “in the name of security” appears desirable: security has now become an ideology. The publication interrogates these pressing issues, appropriating the words of composer Gershon Kingsley to ask its audience, “what would you give for security?” As a reference book to the subject, the publication compiles contributions by sociologists, historians, media artists, political and cultural scientists.
