Chelsea Manning’s release of hundreds of thousands of pages of classified documents has been described as “the information age exploding on itself”. Laurie Anderson’s music and performance art – from Big Science to Homeland and Habeas Corpus—has been infused by a critique of American militarism and hubris. In their respective areas they have been on the cutting edge of technology. They talk about the twin engines of resistance – art and activism—and the future, both liberating and threatening, presented by technological innovation.
