"The exciting work in this exhibition reflects and intervenes on the conditions of information production, exposing the apparatus of power and its relationship to new forms of censorship. The distinctive aesthetic strategies utilized by the artists confront the “medium of the message” and provide extraordinary, alternative modes of seeing communication and its meaning.”
- comment by the curators, 1 September.

At a moment of ever expanding means of visibility and information surges, the discourse around censorship as a form of limitation or redaction is in need of re-examination. While this traditional notion of censorship as negation aiming to influence public opinion is still pursed by various governments, enterprise, media and cultural institutions, increasingly concentrations of power have focused on augmenting and amplifying the accumulation of information and taking a proactive approach to 'message management'.
