The very first CameraDance in Hungary!

The Technology for Man Foundation kindly invites you and your friends to the first Hungarian CameraDance.

The purpose of the CameraDance Performance is to raise public awareness about the camera systems installed on the streets. Do you know who installed those cameras that are watching you every day? Do you know who are the ones watching you? Do you know whether it is recorded? Do you know how long they store the tapes? In our opinion these are crucial questions. It is worth considering how efficient this technology is and what its downsides are.

Our performances will take place in front of various camera systems in the following locations, at the following time:
September 10, 2005. Saturday

10:00-10:20 corner of Jókai tér és Andrássy út
10:35-10:55 Nyugati tér, at the clock
11:15-11:35 Moszkva tér, the stop of tram Nr.61

In case you would like to watch the performance from the perfect „seat” than go to the „monitor room” of the closest police station. If you do not manage to get in, then the worst scenario is that you can watch the performance live with your own eyes.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

(Marching from one location to another is not the part of the demonstration.)
