This is the first of two programmes for LOOK/17 (Liverpool International Photography Festival) where we explore urbanism and exchange through the universality of photography.


Throughout the week we are joined by John van Aitken & Jane Brake from the Institute of Urban Dreaming (IUD) – Their Temporary Research Space is installed in the Tate Exchange space for the public to engage and interact with. Join IUD to explore a collection of photographs, books, articles and videos, about the dispossessions and displacements behind the visual drama of China’s hyper urbanization.

IUD’s Temporary Research Space is designed by Tim Denton and funded by Grants for the Arts.
