MARN: The Dossier Project

>>> Did you know that your government can read your e-mail? >>> Did you know that your government can access your personal medical records, your financial records, your library checkout and bookstore purchase records? >>> Did you know that your government can secretly rifle through papers in your offices, studios and homes without first showing a warrant? >>> Did you know that your government can spy in your houses of worship or political meetings for intelligence purposes without suspecting a crime? >>> Did you know that your government wants to be able to strip you of your citizenship based on your associations of which they don’t approve? Welcome to the brave, new world of America, post 9/11. What are you as an artist, concerned for your fundamental rights of thought and expression, going to do about it? We are planning an art exhibition to explore the implications of the developing security state for our liberties and privacy. Entailing both art and related programming, timed to coincide with the campaign period for Wisconsin’s presidential primary, this show in the historic heart of Milwaukee’s downtown should be a major event on the political map. We hope that you will join us. http://www.dossierproject.com/
