Panelists

  • Andrea Gogröf is Professor of Liberal Studies at WWU. Her main area of interest is comparative literature and philosophy with a focus on romanticism and modernity. In her interdisciplinary research of surveillance, Gogröf links sociological discourse with literature and literary theory for a critical examination of the systematic proliferation of surveillance technologies and the erosion of the distinction between the public and private sphere.
  • Garry Neill Kennedy is one of Canada’s most prominent and pioneering contemporary artists. In addition to an extensive international exhibition history, Kennedy has also held the position of president of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design for twenty-three years (1967-1990), establishing NSCAD University as a forerunner in art education.
  • Evan Lee is a visual artist based in Vancouver, Canada. He is known for exhibitions of his experimental image-based work, but also for working across the range of media and subjects, as well as teaching and writing.
