“Adorable Big Brother” Assembles Surveillance Capitalism Vignettes at Asia Culture Center

Showcasing artists including Chim↑Pom, Hasan Elahi, and Eisa Jocson, “Adorable Big Brother: On Never Being Able to be Alone Again” opens at the ACC in Gwangju (KR). Ambivalent in tone, the exhibition explores surveillance “from production to consumption, control to exclusion.” Zheng Mahler’s 3D animation The Master Algorithm (2019), for example, sardonically embodies China’s technocratic AI arms race and social credit system as Qiu Hao, a virtual figure that “mutates, grows and disappears into clouds of data.”
