Who Will Guard the Guardians?

Presented by Utah Museum of Contemporary Art at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

WHO WILL GUARD THE GUARDIANS? is a four-part series hosted by the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in conjunction with its Main Gallery exhibition, Panopticon: Visibility, Data, and the Monitoring Gaze. Three lecturers will discuss various aspects of panopticism, from its underlying history to how we exist under it today. The final series installation is a screening of the 1985 science fiction film, Brazil. This series is open to the public. Suggested $5 donation.

Brazil centers on Sam Lowry, a man trying to find a woman who appears in his dreams while he is working in a mind-numbing job and living in a small apartment. The film is set in a consumer-driven dystopian world in which there is an over-reliance on poorly maintained machines. Brazil?‘?s bureaucratic, totalitarian government is reminiscent of the government depicted in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, except that it has a buffoonish, slapstick quality and lacks a Big Brother figure.
