The Glass Room Community Edition is a pop-up exhibition that explores how society is dealing with the growing dependency on data and technology, and the normalisation of monitoring and surveillance. It aims to engage visitors to think more critically about their devices and interactions with technology, as well as the mechanisms and companies that create the environment of those technologies.
This edition was developed as a result of high demand from visitors of larger Glass Rooms in London and New York, who also wanted to set up similar exhibitions in their cities. This slimmed down, portable version comes in a lightweight and adaptable format that can be set up in a variety of different spaces from libraries and schools, to conferences and metro stations. So far we have hosted 97 events in 21 countries and it is available in English, French, German and Spanish.
If you are interested in partnering with us to create a new edition or localise/translate it for your community or region please apply via our partnerships open call.
Hosting your own Glass Room Community Edition is very easy. We’ve found it works best in busy places, as part of a bigger event or in institutions like libraries and schools. It can be set up for any length of time, from 2 to 3 days to a longer period. The exhibit is visually striking and can adapt to most spaces. Visitors browse the exhibits for between 5 to 15 minutes on average. It works as a stand-alone installation – all the exhibits have simple explanations. However, it works even better if there is one or more people on hand to explain the exhibit or give tips and advice on online privacy.
We will send you all the information you need, alongside all the posters and necessary accessories like a magnifying glass, animations, handling gloves and more! If you want more detailed information or have any questions please contact us at email@example.com .
