An interview with curator Wim Melis about the concept for NUCLEUS. This video is spoken in Dutch. For more information, visit www.noorderlicht.com.
The 24th edition of the Noorderlicht 2017 International Photography Festival is about science and the representation of it by photographers and artists. Artists often ask themselves the same questions as scientists and share many of the same principles: originality, creativity and an open mind. In NUCLEUS (‘the core’) the two disciplines will enter into a dialogue with one another: science is a subject in the festival as well as a source of inspiration. The exhibitions revolve around the human urge to want to understand and control the world around us. NUCLEUS is about discovery and progress.
