Another Kind Of Life: Photography On The MarginsPart of 2018 season The Art of Change, Another Kind of Life at the Barbican explores how photographers and artists take inspiration from those on the margins of society. Through a display of more than 300 works by 20 photographers, taken between 1950 and the present day, it will look at how some of the most powerful images of the 20th and 21st century come as a result of the engagement with communities who are often at odds with, or on the fringes of, the mainstream and how social attitudes have evolved over time. Works by the likes of Bruce Davidson, Casa Susanna, Larry Clark and Mary Ellen will go on display, with vintage and contemporary prints, archival material, specialist magazines, and rare film and photo books that touch on gender and sexuality, drugs and addiction, youth culture and minorities of all kinds.

Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
