Last week Vikki Bell gave the final talk entitled ‘Imagine This! Art as a Forum for Truth-telling’ at the University of Essex’s ‘Argentina 1976-2016’ week: Argentina 1976-2016: Activism, Memorialisation and Complicity. This was followed by a short film presentation of Buena memoria on the work of Marcelo Brodsky.
The above shows Marcelo working on an image of his school class from 1967, on which he inscribed the stories of what happened to his class in the twenty years following the taking of the photograph. This meant detailing the impact the 1976-1983 dictatorship had on a group of school-aged children. Some were murdered or disappeared by the regime; some were forced into exile.

On Tuesday 22 March, actor, writer and TV presenter Lenny Henry will be taking part in our Question Time-style panel event examining how British television represents its population.
Part of the Future for Public Service Television Inquiry, the debate will cover diversity in the media, a subject on which Lenny has been especially vocal, calling for better representation of black and Asian minority ethnic (BAME) people in the creative industries.
Lenny will be joined by panellists Bev Skeggs, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London; Rupa Huq, MP and former Sociology lecturer; and Dawn Foster, writer on politics, social affairs and economics at the Guardian.
The event is open to the public and free tickets can be booked through eventbrite.
