Global Control and Censorship

September 13 – October 21, 2018
The National Library of Latvia

The exhibition aims to expand public debate about the ever-present surveillance and censorship methods.

The exhibition is based on the collaboration with a network of scientists, journalists, activists, and artists in some twenty countries around the world, and in cooperation with expert organizations such as the German PEN Center, the Chaos Computer Club, Reporters Without Borders, and such platforms as,, WikiLeaks, and others. The exhibition’s aim is to expand public debate about the ever-present surveillance and censorship methods, which is an urgent priority not only due to constant new reports in the media, but especially because of the extensive obstruction of the investigation of these practices.

The exhibition features 33 both internationally recognized and emerging artists works from more than 13 countries world-wide, including Latvia. The exhibition is produced by Goethe-Institut Riga and RIXC, in cooperation with the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe.
