COLLECTIVE IMAGING AND IMAGINING

To accompany its symposium on Saturday, 27 October 2018 at London College of Communication, VISIBLE JUSTICE presented four moving image works:

Larry Achiampong & David BlandyFF Gaiden (2017)

David Birkin, Charade (2018)

Edmund Clark, Oresteia (2017)

Helene Kazan, Under Multiple Suns (2018)

Each work was produced in collaboration with an organisation or community, examining issues such as the use of drama therapy in a British prison, human rights litigation against abuses of UK state power, communities in the North of England affected by deindustrialization and defunding, and the contested histories that remain inscribed into the day-to-day materiality of the built environment in Lebanon.

Also exhibited were a series of black and white images by the photojournalist, educator, and activist Shahidul Alam, imprisoned at the time in Bangladesh, which speak to his unswerving commitment to freedom of speech and human rights.
