VIP exhibition Beard Goggles


Thinking Visually, Feeling Visually: Student Films from the International Relations Department

Hosted by LSE Arts

Atrium Gallery, Old Building,

An exhibition of student films from the International Relations Department at LSE. 

In ‘Visual International Politics’ (IR318), International Relations students didn’t just watch movies – they make their own films. This exhibit screens six short documentary films that address topics ranging from the global politics of beards (Beard Goggles), to a behind the scenes look at London’s Russian elite (Bliny vs. Scones), to a political ethnography of passengers on The Night Bus.

The course is taught by Professor William A. Callahan (IR Department) and Darren Moon (LTI). This exhibition is co-organised by LSE’s International Relations Department and Learning Technology and Innovation unit.

This exhibition runs from 30 January to 24 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 Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the  LSE Arts website.
