Wendy McMurdo’s Classrooms will be shown as part of DATA RUSH at the 2015 Noorderlicht International Photofestival in Groningen from the 22nd Aug to 11th Oct.
‘In Data Rush, internationally renowned photographers and multimedia artists take stock of the digital era. We surround ourselves with virtual networks, but to what extent do we still have control over our data? DATA RUSH is coupled with two sideline exhibitions and an in-depth programme focusing on the theme of privacy and surveillance.’
Curator Wim Melis: “We have opted for a topical and at the same time challenging theme. The data traffic, which affects all aspects of our lives and the entire virtual society, is invisible to the naked eye. How do you photograph something that is barely photographable?”
