The students of Düsseldorf-based professor of photography Mareike Foecking (Hochschule Düsseldorf / Peter Behrens School of Art) gather every Tuesday to discuss the future of photography and the image in a digital age. The exhibition “Tuesday Night Fever” will be presenting their results from the 12th of February to the 6th of March 2016 at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.
For this exhibition, curated by Mareike Foecker, students from the Hochschule Düsseldorf, the Peter Behrens School of Art, the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and the Fachhochschule Dortmund will be presenting their work from recent terms. The common denominator is a question discussed during Mareike Foecking’s seminar: How is digitalisation changing our society and in what kind of society do we want to live in the future. Based on photography theory as well as approaches from media and culture theory, students have developed images and concepts engaging, in different ways, with how images depict and create social realities as well as utopic notions.
