PowerPoint Polemics

Opening tomorrow at The Photographers’ Gallery in London: PowerPoint Polemics
“Although there’s a growing body of literature addressing PowerPoint’s place in contemporary knowledge production, it has so far been overlooked as an artistic medium and exhibition format, despite its sole function being grounded in visual arts.
On the year the 26th anniversary of Microsoft’s release of PowerPoint, the Media Wall, in partnership with the Goethe-Institut London, are commissioning 15 artists, scientists and theorists to playfully consider the politics and aesthetics of slideware, while speculating on the future of image production.
