The Contemporary:

An Exhibition: Art AND politics

Birkbeck, University of London, 2017

Following the success of the 2016 exhibition, Birkbeck's MA Contemporary Literature and Culture students present creative responses to the 'contemporary' through the theme 'art and politics'. Using the medium of photography, film, digital spaces, and virtual reality, the students engage with pressing political issues that face us today - including, of course, Brexit, Trump and social ruination. Other exhibits examine materiality, reality, and architecture. 

Our event proudly hosted 50 visitors!

The event was blogged by two students - Annapurna Barry and Sara Alouani here
