Utilising a thoroughly interdisciplinary research methodology, borrowing from sound studies, legal history and theory, media studies, art history, curatorial practice, and exhibition design, this project asks: What is eavesdropping? Can we trace its history? How might eavesdropping be framed as a critical practice? With what political, ethical, and legal resonances? Are artists eavesdroppers? And curators? What aesthetic strategies do they use? What are their methodologies?
