WE RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY? 
Program. Autumn 2019

In the times of the utmost digital intruding in personal life, we are constantly reminded of validation of our privacy in continuous pop-up screens of web-pages and endless sign-in forms. And aren’t those conditions are entirely neglected by predictive typing, content suggestions and “things you might also like”? How much do you anticipate the invasion in your personal life when creating massive social network presence? Didn’t you tape off your laptop camera? Don’t you get advert recommendations about something, you’ve merely spoken in the presence of your phone?
However, the Biennale topic is more comprehensive than concerns regarding digital interference and “15 minutes of fame”. Following the subject of the 1st WASBiennale – Be My Guest, the theme WE RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY? repeatedly addressing the current socio-political situation in the world, as well as artistic representation in the circumstances of recession.
Is it really possible nowadays to stay quiet and “nonresistant to evil”, do not make a choice, do not participate in some way? Is the position of the spectator a way of independence, or is it masks neglection? And would it be ethical to encourage someone to be committed, or it will be disrespectful to their privacy?
