From Bradford UNESCO City of Film, we write about photography, film and television, and daily life in a national museum.
March 2012 – February 2013
[open source] will be the first exhibition to open in our brand new Life Online exhibition space on the 7th floor. The gallery, which opens to the public on Friday 30th March 2012, has been created to explore key issues surrounding the internet and our relationship with it. A series of annual exhibitions will enable our visitors to further explore a number of the themes presented in the Life Online gallery in the foyer.
[open source] focuses on the internet’s open culture of sharing and collaboration, while also considering threats to the neutrality of the network. If we fail to preserve net neutrality could we be facing the end of online culture as we know it? The exhibition will include a series of brand new commissions by internationally-renowned artists alongside an artwork created by the gallery’s younger audience.
We’ll be keeping you up to date on all the latest Life Online developments on this blog, so keep watching this space!
