A Russian Takeover

A Russian Takeover

27/10/2017

 

Opening last week 100 years after the Russian Revolution, Tate Modern’s most recent show sees two Russian artists take spotlight. Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Not Everyone Will Be Taken Into The Future explores the work of the artists most widely known for their large-scale installation and use of fictional personas. Manipulating art history, Soviet propaganda and utopian ideals, see history’s undoing at Tate Modern until the 28th of January.

Can Historians help shape foreign policy?

Can Historians help shape foreign policy?

31/05/2017

 

Last night we were guests of Chatham House to debate this question in the wake of Theresa May's Lancaster House speech in which she shared a post Brexit vision where Britain's relationships with European and global partners would be driven by its 'profoundly internationalist history and culture'. Is this a harking back to the days of empire? And if so, are Britain’s partners around the world willing to engage with her in this spirit or will they take a more pragmatic approach, pursuing the geopolitical and trading relationships that best serve their national interests? These were some of the questions considered during a wide ranging debate.
