Barbican Writing Migration

Wed, 26 May 2022

Postwar Modern features the work of many artists who moved to Britain as refugees from Nazism, in the bloody aftermath of India’s Partition or as part of the ‘Windrush Generation’.

Three authors, Colin Grant, Phillipe Sands and Ian Sanjay Patel, discuss their personal experience of writing about postwar migration, imperialism and British identity, as well as their personal reflections of the exhibition.
