OLD WORLD ORDER/ NEW WORLD ORDERS IS AN EXCITING NEW EXHIBITION OF MOVING IMAGE WORK BY CONTEMPORARY BRITISH ARTISTS FROM THE BRITISH COUNCIL COLLECTION AND LUX. THIS EXHIBITION WILL BE PRESENTED AT THE ARTMEKEN GALLERY IN ALMATY FROM 21 SEPTEMBER – 20 OCTOBER 2019.
The modern world sees the emergence of new social structures and associations of individuals and the transformation of existing ones. As traditional social boundaries change, we face very pressing issues of identity and affiliation. What can history tell us about that?
The presented works provide an insight into the themes of material and non-material cultural heritage, modern culture, general identity and unity of society.
Drawn from the British Council Collection and the LUX archive these six UK-based artists explore these issues using the biographic and documentary genres in cinematography, poetry and artistic fiction.
