Resistance Doesn't Walk Alone

Hosted by LSE Festival: How Do We Get to a Post-COVID World?

Atrium Gallery, Old Building

This multimedia exhibition explores and visualised inequalities and resistance in Brazil.

The collaboration between photographer Johnny Miller and the Politics of Inequality research theme, showcases the ways that individuals and communities are confronting, challenging, and resisting political, social and economic inequalities. The exhibition works were captured in eight cities across Brazil in 2022. The research project was commissioned by LSE’s Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE) programme, which co-hosts the Politics of Inequality research theme with LSE’s International Inequalities Institute. The exhibition has been curated by Dr Kara Blackmore.

Register for the exhibition launch event taking place at 6.30pm on Tuesday 14 June at Resistance Doesn't Walk Alone - launch event.
