Exhibition continues until Friday 2 September

This exhibition is a photographic display of portraits of 25 refugees from Austria who settled in the UK, among them the violinist Nobert Brainin, the photographer and cameraman Wolfgang Suschitzky, the dance teacher Stella Mann, and the composer Joseph Horovitz. All 25 interviewees featured in this exhibition have taken part in the Continental Britons and Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) Refugee Voices audio-visual history projects and have given their testimony within the last 10 years. The portraits of the interviewees will be complemented by short messages and thoughts expressed in the interview. These touch on general themes of tolerance, refugees, racism, history, humanity, and identity. Accompanying the photographic exhibition will be a 30 minutes long film, which follows the lives of the 25 Austrian men and women depicted in the portraits and explores their double exposure to the cultures of Austria and Britain.
