Case study: CCTV in Rosengård.

December 12, 2018

This is my contribution to this seminar course, in which I share some thoughts about CCTV in Rosengård, a highly monitored residential district in Malmö. Built in the 1960s – 70s, Rosengård is often described as a brutal piece of architecture, not seldom is the built environment blamed for the social unrest in the area. My aim has not been to cover all there is to know about CCTV, rather to reflect on how it might feel to live in a surveilled neighborhood, and the acceptance of digitally distributed information gathered about all people who are filmed while spending time outside their homes. // Maria
