Black Ocean Launches PRIVACY POLICY: The Anthology of Surveillance Poetics

Black Ocean presents readings by : Emily Abendroth, Ben Fama, Harmony Holiday, Cathy Park Hong, Amy King, Noelle Kocot, Eileen Myles, Raphael Rubinstein, and Danniel Schoonebeek.

Drones, phone taps, NSA leaks, internet tracking—the headlines confirm it—we are living in a state of constant surveillance, and the idea of “the private sphere" is no longer what it used to be. Privacy Policy: The Anthology of Surveillance Poetics responds to this timely and crucial issue through the voices of over sixty contemporary poets, including Robert Pinsky, Jorie Graham, John Ashbery, Rae Armantrout, Nikki Giovanni, and D.A. Powell. Nature, ethics, technology, sex, the internet—no voyeuristic stone goes unturned in this expansive exploration of the individual, information, and how we are watched.
