Surveillance cameras, facial recognition software, commercial exploitation of our private data, constant digital surveillance in public spaces: all these technologies are increasingly encircling our daily lives and our way of living together.

The Edgelands Institute has set itself the goal of establishing “ephemeral laboratories” to study the impact of this digitalisation of security in different urban environments. Yesterday in Medellin and Cúcuta, today in Geneva and Nairobi, tomorrow in Singapore and Chicago, the aim is to promote understanding of this new digital landscape.

Edgelands Institute and Magnum Photos are happy to invite you for a discussion about their ongoing collaboration. Bernard Rappaz of Edgelands Institute will be in conversation with Magnum photographers Peter van Agtmael and Thomas Dworzak. Moderated by Pascal Hufschmid, Executive Director of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum.
