One package, addressed to Julian Assange, is live.
On 16 January 2013 !Mediengruppe Bitnik sent a package to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. At this time Assange had just been granted asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. The package contained a hidden camera that recorded its journey through the postal system through a hole and documented it live online by means of a transmitter. At their market stall Bitnik presents the package and tells of this extraordinary mail art action that is about the lust for and loss of control in logistical and political spaces.
