Another Europe, an outdoor exhibition of photographs around Kings Cross – now on and until Thursday 9 August

Another Europe features 28 photographs, one from each EU Member-State, mounted on specially designed concrete benches dispersed around London’s King’s Cross area. The photographers represent a wide range of photographic practices and are a mixture of established and emerging talents. Together they voice themes and influences we all recognise as part of our cultural heritage from concrete manifestations such as monuments, buildings and sites to the more ephemeral social aspects such as childhood, fairytales, theatre, landscape, conflict, work, celebration, family, memories, literature and traditions.
