Dream. Snap. Freedom: Radical Play Through Photography

An archive-inspired online programme curated by Central St Martins MA students.

We are thrilled to be hosting Dream. Snap. Freedom, a month-long online programme bringing together material from Four Corners Archive alongside work by recent graduates to explore creative approaches to protest photography. 

" We want to re-activate the Four Corners Archive within a contemporary setting alongside a look at how we engage with the same issues of the archive today with upcoming and graduate photographers.

Looking at creative responses to activism and protest through photography and film, we are particularly interested in embodied expressions of passion and joy in LGBTQ+, anti-racist and feminist activism.

Our research is focused on four exhibitions from the archive: Same Difference (1986), A Peace of the Action (1983), Our Space in Britain (1987) and Brick Lane 1978. The intention is to spark an intergenerational dialogue between past and present protest/resistance/action through the exhibition display during the month-long event."


16 November will see the launch of an online exhibition showcasing projects by graduate photographers from University of the Arts London such as Isobel Van Dyke, Victoria Vorobeva and Terrence Phearse, and the Royal College of Arts graduate Sissel Kärneskog, plus selected works from writer/filmmaker Ed Web-Ingall and photographers Sebastian Barros and JC Verona. 

There will also be online events programme and series of blog posts creating conversations between established and early career photographers.
