Ministry of Measurement, 2013, by thickear, took place within London’s Barbican Centre for two weeks from 7th to 18th August 2013 as part of the festival Hack the Barbican. Repurposing the venue’s gargantuan cloakroom area into a dystopian data collection bureau, the work examined our inherent discomfort about the hidden value institutions and companies place upon our data.

Ministry of Measurement was commissioned by ICT&ART and the European Commission, and was the inaugural project to be supported by FET-ART.
