PEE PRIVACY WARNING: Before you flush, please accept the terms and conditions

When visitors of the exhibition Private_Eye_Butler_Spy want to flush the toilet, they first have to accept the terms and conditions. Sewer Surveillance data is ramping up. We flush away our data without our consent. Pee Privacy by Woven Studio makes you aware of this.

From 1 June 2022, Arcam will charge an entrance fee to visit the gallery and the exhibitions. Buy your ticket online via the ticket button or at the box office.

Toilet water contains information for, for example, obtaining general data on public health. What data could be extracted from our urine in the future? And to what level? Woven Studio’s Pee Privacy Project draws attention to the fact that even your poo or pee contains data, and that you flush it away mindlessly every day.

“If we do not watch out we flush the last bit of our privacy through the toilet."
Embassy of the free pee
