The Glass Room is curated by Tactical Tech and presented by Mozilla

Curated by Stephanie Hankey and Marek Tuszynski, the Glass Room was originally conceived and produced in the context of the exhibition “Nervous Systems” with support by Haus der Kulturen der Welt in the framework of “100 Years of Now” and is based on an original concept shown in March-May 2016 at the HKW in Berlin, Germany.

Special thanks to the following individuals for their help in adapting the content to a New York context:
