An exciting new exhibition to provoke you into an opinion or simply give you something to think over in this ever-changing world of international politics

 

From Monday the 11th of January, the department of Arts at the London School of Economics and Politics are exhibiting videos made by International Relations undergraduates which all respectively visually investigate topical, worldwide issues. A collection of six short films displayed on three televisions look into, and subsequently induce discussion on, events and social circumstances from the Chinese New Year to the closely guarded public space of post 9/11 Britain.

Instructed by both an internal LSE professor and independent film maker, Simon Wood, the short films on offer are a positively solid collection of structural skill and social political awareness.

Including works titled An Intergenerational Story — which looks into what it means to be a modern-day, British Asian — as well as Celebrating Protest: International Women’s Day which asks whether this should be a protest or a celebration, the collection, although small, offers a provocative and insightful discussion into an array of significant, socially weighty issues.

One of many events that LSE have opened to the public in the past for attendance and discussion, the exhibition will be running until Friday the 29th of January between 10am-8pm, so there is still plenty of time to come and check it out.
