In June 2021, Amsterdam Art Weekend was extended to an Art Week and took place from 17 to 27 June. This year, Nxt Museum contributed to the program with two events hosted at Nxt Lab.
Nxt was pleased to invite Amsterdam Art’s Young Professionals for a special evening in the museum, in celebration of the recently installed work Zoom Pavilion (2015). The audiovisual installation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, in collaboration with Krzysztof Wodiczko, renders alarmingly visible the ubiquity of surveillance. Twelve surveillance cameras, using facial recognition, blob tracking and subtraction algorithms, track and monitor the public and determine whether their proximity is ‘suspicious’.
