Te Papa

Artist Simon Denny and investigative journalist Nicky Hager talk surveillance, espionage, and the other big issues behind Denny’s Venice Biennale project Secret Power.

What does Secret Power say about our national identity and role in surveillance? What is the role of artists if the media is in decline? Can art help us cope with a world saturated by information?

And what happens when the watched become the watchers?

Join the debate as Denny, Hager, broadcaster Kim Hill, and art curator Sarah Farrar discuss wide-reaching questions sparked by Secret Power. This acclaimed project explores surveillance, espionage, and New Zealand’s role in the Five Eyes international intelligence alliance. Te Papa has recently acquired art works from the project.

The evening includes a free drink and refreshments.
