Exiled to Nowhere: Burma's Rohingya

LSE Arts public exhibition

Date: Monday 16 July - Friday 24 August 2012
Time: Monday-Friday, 10am-8pm
Venue:  Atrium Gallery, Old Building

This photographic exhibition by Greg Constantine exposes the struggles of one of Asia's most oppressed minortity groups, the Rohingya. This exhibition exposes the struggles the Rohingya face in Bangladesh as refugees, but more importantly it aims to open a window into the neglect and abuse the Rohingya endure inside their homeland, Myanmar (Burma).

The exhibition is timed to coincide with the release of a photography book (May 2012) of the same theme and will be utilized by several international humanitarian and human rights organizations as a platform to discuss Burma-related issues and statelessness.

Suggested hashtag for this event for Twitter users: #LSEBurma

This exhibition is open to all, no ticket required. Visitors are welcome during weekdays (Monday - Friday) between 10am and 8pm (excluding bank holidays, when the school is closed at Christmas and Easter or unless otherwise stated on the web listing). For further information email arts@lse.ac.uk or phone on 020 7107 5342. 

There is also an associated panel discussion in conjunction with this exhibition on Monday 16 July: Burma's Rohingya: A panel discussion

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 Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the  LSE Arts website. 

From time to time there are changes to event details so we strongly recommend that if you plan to attend this event you check back on this listing on the day of the event.
