The Commissar Asks to Be Forgotten 2018 - ongoing
Who gets to be forgotten in the digital age?
Under the guise of Nikolai Yezhov, the deceased former Soviet commissar who Stalin famously erased from photographs, I have been writing to various search engines invoking the EU's controversial "right to be forgotten" law and documenting responses. No such law currently exists in the United States. The project is part of a broader investigation into privacy, memory, history, and censorship.
