How To Disappear considers the pervasive modes and technologies of surveillance in the making of contemporary society. This includes subtle and overt practices of racial profiling in public spaces, the distant violence of aerial surveillance, and the silent accumulation of algorithmic and digital data on almost every aspect of a person's life. 
Working with analogue and digital imaging technologies, found footage and photographs, and more traditional media, participating artists' reflect on how these surveillance methods render us as visible and visualised subjects. And in some cases, attempt to reclaim a sense of autonomy by revealing how these technologies might be turned towards forms of resistance. ______________ On view until 11 April 2020 Artists included are: Broomberg & Chanarin David Goldblatt Ewa Nowak Hyun-Sook Song Nolan Oswald Dennis Ja’Tovia Gary Jeremy Wafer Kahlil Joseph Mary Wafer mounir fatmi _______________ #HowToDisappear #GoodmanGallery #johannesburg
