Btihaj Ajana's 'Surveillance Culture'

Posted on 07/12/2017

Contemporary life is interwoven with surveillance. Gadgets and applications are increasingly being developed and used for tracking, quantifying, and documenting everyday life activities. State surveillance is now merely one example of the multifaceted forms of contemporary surveillance practices. This new documentary, co-directed by Dr Btihaj Ajana with surveillance scholar Anders Albrechtslund, explores contemporary forms of surveillance with a focus on the Danish context.



Focusing on the example of Denmark, this documentary explores the different manifestations and locales of surveillance, weaving together experts’ accounts and public opinions to reveal what is at stake in contemporary digital surveillance culture.
