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 Artwork Museum of Shymkent from 15 June – 14 July 2019. This will be the global premier of this exhibition and represents the first time that the British Council has collaborated with the Fine Arts Museum, with the support of The Akimat of Shymkent.
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.
