Laurie Anderson and Chelsea Manning on Art, Technology, and Activism

Chelsea Manning’s release of hundreds of thousands of pages of classified documents has been described as “the information age exploding on itself”. Laurie Anderson’s music and performance art – from Big Science to Homeland and Habeas Corpus—has been infused by a critique of American militarism and hubris. In their respective areas they have been on the cutting edge of technology. They talked about the twin engines of resistance – art and activism—and the future, both liberating and threatening, presented by technological innovation.
