Join us for a special online event with photographers Dragana Jurisic, Amak Mahmoodian and Eileen Perrier.


Photographers Dragana Jurisic, Amak Mahmoodian and Eileen Perrier will discuss their work in relation to ideas of identity, belonging and Britishness, and how their personal histories of migration and exile have influenced them.

This talk is part of our public programme which has run alongside the exhibition 'Another Eye: Women Refugee Photographers in Britain after 1933’.

Her latest book Museum is in collaboration with acclaimed Irish poet Paula Meehan. She is currently working on Something From There in the National Gallery Ireland with a group of asylum-seekers. This project aims to give an insight into the personal narratives of the participants as they reflect upon their possessions and meditate on the idea of home.
