INFO

Web 1.0 was invented to allow physicists to share research papers. Web 2.0 was created to allow people to share pictures of cute cats.
Ethan Zuckerman

Photographs of cats have come to dominate the web’s image culture. From the cute to the absurd, millions of cat images are viewed, modified and shared online each day. A quick search reveals websites devoted to nineteenth century cat photography, cat memes, celebrity cat photoblogs and tutorials on how to best photograph one’s cat.

For the duration of this exhibition, we will invite various individuals and communities to respond to this phenomenon and share their own collections of cat photographs on The Wall.

In February 2013 we will be releasing a small print on demand publication with 12 specially commissioned texts in which various writers playfully consider the place of the cat image in contemporary culture. Watch this space for more details.
