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?
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.

Above the Noorderlicht gallery of Noorderlicht a beautiful library of photo books has been built over the past thirty years. In recent months we have catalogued all these beautiful editions. There is now an iPad in the gallery where all titles are listed. If you wish, you can view a book of your choice free of charge during a visit to Noorderlicht | House of Photography. The desk staff will gladly collect the desired edition from the library.
Jiří Stach - Natura Magica
The first extensive collection of works by the Prague photographer Jiří Stach (1944), with 148 photographs and drawings he made between 1975 and 2005.
“My favourite exhibition was ‘Nazar - Arab eyes’ in 2004. In the height of post 9/11 world and the Afghan and Iraq wars, not only did ‘Nazar’ speak up on these issues, but the exhibition also offered a clear vision, that went radically against the mainstream way of thinking. ‘Nazar’ contained everything that Noorderlicht stands for.”
