Catherine Wagner uses photography to investigate how systems that disseminate information control what we learn and teach. Her images of primary schools, military bases, police academies, trade schools and universities are empty of figures yet reveal traces of society. Her work has been collected in many prominent museums, including MoMA, The Met, Tate Modern, and the Smithsonian.
