Black Transparency – The Right to Know in the Age of Mass Surveillance

The project Black Transparency questions how information is organised globally and what role the concept of transparency occupies within it.Metahaven‘s research in this field covers the technological, legal (infra) structures of information, organisation, and power networks of the Internet, in relation to locality.

The internet, once seen as the de-territorialised space amid a world of nation states, appears to be an instrument with far-reaching consequences and implications for borders, jurisprudence, and sovereignty. This is at odds with the original ideology of the Internet as being a place of  freedom (of information), emancipation, and democratisation.
