The Autopsies Research Group present a museum round-table entitled 'Objects Under Surveillance'. Panellists including Simon Baker (Curator of Photography, Tate), Katy McGahan (Curator, BFI), Neil Paterson (Manager, the Metropolitan Police Historical Collection) and Jann Matlock (UCL French and Film) will discuss the history of surveillance objects; the utilisation of representations of surveillance in the public domain; and the social and cultural implications of the popularisation of surveillance media. The round-table will explore the themes addressed by the two projects within the UCL Film Studies Space 'Cinematic Memory, Consumer Culture, and Everyday Life', and 'The Work of Film' and is the first in a series of events engaging with surveillance images and technologies.
