Real Estates exhibitions—bringing together key social issues

by Paul Murphy
Issue No. 2445

Real Estates is a series of exhibitions centred on housing, which brings together activists and local residents. 

Previous weeks have featured photographers Moyra Peralta and Bekki Perriman’s work on homelessness. The DIG Collective’s photography about the demolition of old Hackney was also on show. 

The Focus E15 mothers led off the fifth week, with banners and films from their campaign for housing.

During the final week, beginning on 25 March, designer Smart Urhiofe’s Ghana Must Go bags will combine bling and politics. Several short films of local estates and residents past and present will be shown. 

There are also several feature films being shown over the programme, including Cathy Come Home, Nostalgia for the Light and Spirit of ’45. 

It is marvellous to see a gallery connecting key social issues with its local community and campaigns. Try to join in this very diverse programme.

Real estates. Peer Gallery, London, N1 6QL. Until 28 March.
