This exhibition, originally held at the ACF London, presents the portraits and stories of 25 refugees from Austria who settled in the UK, among them the violinist Nobert Brainin, the photographer and cameraman Wolfgang Suschitzky, and the dance teacher Stella Mann. The portraits of the interviewees are complemented by short messages and thoughts expressed in the interviews. The exhibition also includes a short film, which follows the lives of the men and women depicted in the portraits and explores their double exposure to the cultures of Austria and Britain.

7 April 2013, 4.30 pm: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Following the screening of the film Double Exposure (50 minutes), there will be a panel discussion with the film maker and curator Dr Bea Lewkowicz and some of the interviewees who feature in her film, including Ernst Flesch, Henry Ebner, and Elly Miller. The discussion, chaired by Dr Anthony Grenville, will focus on the experiences of the Jewish refugees from Austria, both in Vienna and in their adopted home in Britain, and explore their identities and their impact on British culture and society.
