Today’s headline is ‘If You Have Nothing To Hide You Have Nothing To Fear’, a phrase attributed to everyone from George Orwell to, most recently, the politician William Hague. Responding to the surveillance of public and private space, Kypros Kyprianou created a curious intervention, by way of a newspaper stand stationed in the Bearpit during peak commuter times.
In a performance that veers between end-is-nigh hectoring and 50’s spy slapstick, the artist gave away free copies of ‘The Daily Record’ to unwitting passersby.
