6 Apr - 26 May
TAXED TO THE MAX, the 26th edition of the International Photography Festival of Noorderlicht, takes place during October and November 2019 in Groningen,
the Netherlands. TAXED TO THE MAX examines the societal tensions created by international conglomerates with their vast accumulations of capital and their influence on national and global politics. TAXED TO THE MAX asks: how does the increasingly perfected entanglement of corporatism, finance capital and modern government affect the lives of regular people?

Announcements of the list of participants of the 2019 Noorderlicht International Photography Festival are expected in the first week of July.
ENTER A DIFFERENT WORLD
An exhibition with artists who make a cross-over from their main practice as a photographer to video. The works are a poetic reflection on the relationship between nature and culture and want to make us aware of the vulnerable relationship between the two.

'The Dynamics of Dust' is a long-term project by Philippe Dudouit (Switzerland, 1977), based on historical and geopolitical documentation, research and analysis. In this series, the photographer examines the new relationships that the nomadic indigenous inhabitants of the Sahelo-Saharan zone have established with a territory that is currently highly perilous. The project, which began in 2008, shows how a former tourist paradise has become a new theatre where human traffic is interlacing with terrorism, drugs and the weapons industry.
Festive opening: Friday June 7th at 5 pm, in the presence of Philippe Dudouit.

“The first time I heard about Noorderlicht was in 2007. At that time, I was studying photography in Barcelona and I asked Pep Bonet about relevant photography festivals in Europe. Noorderlicht became a reference to understand the breadth and the possibilities of documentary photography.”
