The Footfall Almanac 2019 collects observations, objects and other traces to instigate a discussion on surveillance techniques currently
deployed in shopping malls, and during public major events in Brussels.

Wireless tracking of mobile phones has become a common method to monitor crowds without requiring explicit permission or active cooperation.
Private companies as well as civil agencies use it to keep a close eye on the movements of city dwellers through public spaces, the former to
forecast sales and the latter for crowd management purposes.

The Footfall Almanac 2019 observes this encounter of actors and predictions in their shared technologies and terminologies.

Edited by: Kurt Tichy and Alex Zakkas
With contributions by: Femke Snelting and Dennis Pohl.
