It is a little-known fact that Edward Snowden, the now famous former employee of the NSA who made public in 2013 a trove of secret documents linked with the massive surveillance carried out by the USA, lived for several years in Geneva. A group of students from HEAD – Genève began with a collective investigation of his traces in this city of neutrality and political asylum, between the international intelligence-gathering scene and the global crossroads for the movement of vast sums of money. Eventually they produced a series of artworks. Reflecting the questioning carried out by these students, the pieces appropriate forms of a technological world, reveal our own impulses towards control, and open so many imaginary, even utopian, possibilities.

Loss of control means time is diluted, the usual reference points have slowed down and often are totally absent. That is the experience of the artists’ group at CAAP. Working on site (drawing their inspiration from the labyrinthine administrative architecture) and meeting with the health workers, the members of the group developed concepts around the question of social control, for example, doors, rituals, words. Where is the key? Is the door open? No, no key, I don’t have the key. C’mon, you lost your key? What are you, a patient? Artist? Nurse?
