The recent disclosures of the US American spy program PRISM and its British version Tempora have put the issue of surveillance on the public agenda again. In 1998, the debate revolving around the Enfopol papers had pointed the public interest to surveillance activities of authorities. With the exhibition Ctrl Space in 2001, Thomas Y. Levin provided an overview of the rhetoric of surveillance and the multiple ways artists react to the media practices of observation and privacy invasion (Levin, Frohner, Weibel 2002). The newly revived public interest in state surveillance appeared at a time, when curator and artist Bogomir Doringer was putting together the Faceless show in Vienna's Museumsquartier.
