Rachel Baynton : A Machine They’re Secretly Building

Venue: Red Lecture Theatre

Dates: 15th to the 27th of August

From what might be a news desk, an office, a bunker under a mountain or a theatre – two people speak up, speak out and blow the whistle on the insidious machine of surveillance. A Machine they’re Secretly Building charts a course from the ‘Top Secret’ secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972’s Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden, and the terror of a future that might already be upon us.
