The 27th edition of the Noorderlicht International Photo Festival is currently open in four locations in the Dutch cities of Heerenveen and Groningen.
‘Generation Z’ presents works by 36 photographers and filmmakers who explore the energy and mindset of those born after 1995. What is their place in society, how do they see their future, what are their ambitions?
Selected by guest curator Robert Jan Verhagen, the represented artists paint a picture of a generation that has an infinite amount of information at its fingertips, is confronted with the impending threats of a depleted planet, and has been growing up in times of economic stagnation and increasingly nationalistic sentiments. However, we also see a generation that is deeply dedicated to the fundamental processes of emancipation, sustainability and inclusivity.
