In conjunction with Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times, author Dodie Bellamy and art historian Pamela Lee discuss the topic of surveillance and the art world, with a focus on Lee’s two current book projects: the cold war think tank and the dark net. Both projects variously engage the national security state, surveillance, and the political interests of secrecy within contemporary culture.
