We’ve rounded up top things to do this month as recommended by LCC students, staff and our local community.
Exhibitions to visit:
August Sander. Men Without Masks
Hauser and Wirth
An exhibition dedicated to the late German photographer, a forefather of conceptual art and pioneering documentarian of human diversity. A selection of rare large scale works from this pioneering documentarian of work made in Germany between 1910 and 1931. "Sander's 'People of the Twentieth Century' is rightly held up as one of the most important bodies of photographic work ever produced" recommends Christopher Stewart, Programme Director Photography.
