LSE 1969

Hosted by LSE Arts

Atrium Gallery, Old Building

The late 1960s saw sit-ins and demonstrations in universities across the USA and Europe and in London the unrest spread to LSE. LSE 1969 will trace the impact of student activism from 1967-1969.

The exhibit aims to explain and clarify some myths surrounding this complex period of LSE’s history through a display of archival documents, photographs and film and audio interviews. 

This event forms part of the “New World (Dis)Orders” series, held in the run up to the LSE Festival, a week-long series of events taking place from 25 February to 2 March 2019, free to attend and open to all, exploring how social science can tackle global issues. How did we get here? What are the challenges? And, importantly, how can we address them? Full programme available online.The exhibition will be accompanied by a lecture, 'Whatever Happened to the Revolution? LSE in the 60s' on Tuesday 26 February and an exhibition tour on Thursday 28 February.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
