Join us to celebrate the launch of Capital City, an exhibition and series of events that examines the relationship between money and property in London, and its effects on all our lives.

Tuesday 17 April
Free and open to all.
Book your ticket to the Launch Night:

6pm — Talk by Iain Sinclair, the poet, writer and filmmaker, author of London Orbital, Lights Out For The Territory, The Last London and many other books about the capital.

Students from the College’s Media School have collaborated with artists, campaigners and researchers. Work produced looks at the political and economic factors that effect London’s skyline, property market and housing stock.

With backgrounds in journalism, photography, critical theory, filmmaking and publishing this exhibition brings together over 50 students and members of staff with exciting mentors and collaborators including artists Kennardphillipps, the film producer Dionne Walker, the researcher and photographer Will Jennings, and Steve Goodrich and Ben Cowdock of Transparency International. Working in multi-disciplinary groups, pieces have been produced in a range of media, from photography, film and text to collage and installation.

The work addresses challenging and sometimes controversial topics such as estate regeneration, the influx into the London housing market of money from overseas sources, the effect on our lived environment of monumental glass towers and debates over gentrification. These are issues that have an impact on all of us across London, including here in Elephant & Castle, currently the site of multiple redevelopment projects including a proposed new building for London College of Communication.
