Chicago Humanities Festival Lecture - Hasan Elahi: Art and Surveillance

Members: $10
Public: $12
Students and Teachers: $5

How do our lives translate to data? After 9/11, Bangladeshi-born American interdisciplinary artist Hasan Elahi was the subject of an intensive, erroneous FBI investigation. He responded by putting his entire life online, from his financial data to transportation logs. The resulting project, “Tracking Transcience,” explores the relationship between location, repetition, technology, and surveillance in the media age.

The annual Richard Gray Visual Art Series recognizes a significant gift from founding CHF board member and distinguished art dealer Richard Gray. This program is presented in partnership with the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art.


Hasan Elahi is an interdisciplinary artist working with issues in surveillance, privacy, migration, citizenship, technology, and the challenges of borders. Elahi has spoken at Tate Modern, the American Association of Artificial Intelligence, International Association of Privacy Professionals, TED Global, and the World Economic Forum. He is currently the Associate Professor of Art at University of Maryland.
