Australian Centre for Photography, Monash Gallery of Art, The Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum, VHS PhotoGalerie, Zephyr Gallery – Adelaide, Brisbane, Germany, Mannheim, Melbourne, Stuttgart, Sydney
June 11th, 2010 to March 30th, 2014
Curated by Mark McPherson and Ute Noll
Curated by Mark McPherson and Ute Noll, Hijacked explores the socio-cultural landscapes of Germany and Australia through the diverse perspectives of 32 contemporary photographers. With a focus on the young, the boundary-riding and the fringe-dwelling, Hijacked was layered with imagery that is evocative, confronting, dreamlike and incisive.
Hijacked 2 was both a substantive book and a major exhibition that reinforced and expanded upon each other.
