Screen Walk with The Dazzle Club

The Dazzle Club will walk pixelated streets and squares of London, leading participants into their archive of routes exploring publicness, autonomy and visibility. Live analogue interventions will frame questions around the new publicness of our homes and how video conferencing has interjected further surveillance into the domestic.

In Screen Walks, a series of live-streamed explorations of digital spaces, selected artists and researchers investigate artistic strategies taking place online. The project gives an insight into practices using the screen as a medium. From re-contextualising pictures found on online marketplaces and uncovering data brokers’ invisible circulation of images to analysing in-game photography and the social, political and economic implications of games – Screen Walks examines various approaches, offers a behind-the-scenes look at artists’ work and uncovers new, current and forgotten digital spaces. Screen Walks is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery in London and Fotomuseum Winterthur.

The Dazzle Club is a collaboration between AiR and Yoke Collective that questions technology and surveillance in public space. They are drawing awareness and building new expressions of community creativity and trust. The Dazzle Club has been featured widely in national and international media including by Reuters, BBC, i-D and the Observer.

AiR makes social art in everyday spaces. They curate progressive public projects through staying in a place, collaborating with citizens, artists, local authorities, universities, charities and community organisations to bring about new ways of being and doing together. Yoke Collective is an artistic and curatorial partnership between Georgina Rowlands and Emily Roderick. Their collaborative performance-based artworks, events and online residencies challenge the positioning of the female body within the algorithms of facial and full-body recognition.
