- The article deals with the situation of the visibility of subjects (observation of them) in a digital society, which, in terms of Zygmunt Bauman, should be described as post-panoptical. Panopticism has lost its popularity in the era of digital hegemony, post-panoptical surveillance has become extraterritorial, thus spreading far beyond social institutions and expanding the horizons of possibilities for forms of suppression and control. Observation no longer affects subjects directly, but their data, digital traces, and since in the conditions of digitalization virtual self-representation is the dominant way of legitimizing the Self through others, identity completely turns from a long-term, “subjective” substance into an object. Post-panoptical surveillance of “objectified” individuals reveals the paradoxes of visibility and raises a number of acute ethical issues, thereby revealing the need for an ethics of visibility as a regulator of the conditions of mass surveillance.
