Donald Rodney. In the House of my Father

Black Art in Britain since 1980

For the last five years, Helen has made a study of Black Art in Britain, taking particular interest in Donald Rodney, Keith Piper and Lubaina Himid to name but three. The work of these artists powerfully responds to the history of slavery, racism, and colonisation. Helen Oakden will discuss the BLK Art Group artists, as well as more contemporary artists including Sonia Boyce who won the Venice Biennale’s top Golden Lion prize in 2022.

 

Lecturer: Helen Oakden

 

Location:  Online Zoom

 

 

The Arts Society Hamburg

The British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS) was founded in 1987 to stimulate interest in the decorative and fine arts and to promote a greater awareness of international cultural heritage.

 

Its head office is based in London and it is a leading arts education charity with over 385 Societies worldwide and over 90,000 members.

 

In 2017 the name was changed to The Arts Society and we became The Arts Society Hamburg e.V. In 2018 we celebrated our 30th anniversary and the Arts Society celebrated its 50th!

The Arts Society Hamburg provides an annual programme of illustrated lectures for its members, given in English, mostly by lecturers from the UK, chosen for their expert knowledge about the arts. Study days are also provided, as well as visits to museums and places of interest both in Germany and abroad.
