I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


The recently departed writer, J.G.Ballard, once said that the true dystopia in the dystopia of the mind. This exhibition explores the unquiet mind, inviting visitors to face the dystopias we carry within us.


Lizz Brady and Lizzie Dunn create a dystopian environment that evokes the tangled world of discarded technology and alienating thoughts that few of us can escape from. Konstantinos Grigoriadis confronts us with the kind of phobias most of us have buried just below the surface. But even in this dark space all is not lost. Our qualities of kindness, intellect, passion and creativity -and, above all, collaboration- are celebrated in these exhibitions and events, just as they were in Thomas More’s original slim volume.
