Steele&Tomczak. Digital Prints. 2009. Caen, France.
This series of photo/text works was produced in Caen to be exhibited during Steele and Tomczak’s major survey exhibition at wharf, Centre d’art contemporain de Basse-Nomandie in 2010. Again, young students were interviewed at the end of their school year in June as many of them were preparing to leave their middle school experience. Here the artists have taken to heart the words of Martha Rosler, who asked in the introduction to her 1975 photo and text work The Bowery… “what can you learn from them that you didn’t already know?”
