Conference March 6-7 New York University Radars and fences, satellites and walls, networks and bunkers. Two different sets of technologies confront us: the former epitomize the selective and flexible character of what Gilles Deleuze termed the “societies of control”; the latter embody the “old” disciplinary paradigm based on separation, physical mass containment, and restriction of the freedom of movement. Most of the times control and discipline coexist ad reinforce each other; sometimes they seem to collide. This is due to a variety of far-reaching factors and transformations occurring in the productive sphere. As a matter of fact, it is the very structure of the network society, with its decentralization of tasks and constant multiplication of electronic eyes that threatens the opacity of physical and immaterial bunkers. By looking at the grey areas where control and discipline, transparency and secrecy, democracy and the state of exception overlap and collide, Radars and Fences provide a cross-disciplinary platform whereby researcherstists, journalists, filmmakers, and activists can negotiate new and critical p, arositions.
