Working with local residents, Some Cities photographers Andrew Jackson and Dan Burwood present an exhibition of photography produced in response to images of 1960s Balsall Heath by Janet Mendelsohn.

Mendelsohn’s archive of photography was rediscovered as part of CCCS50, a recent University of Birmingham research project by Matthew Hilton and Kieran Connell, which re-examined the significance of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies and communicated its pioneering work to a wider audience.

Take in a range of real stories as part of the opening weekend, which includes the exhibition launch on Friday 18 March, 18.00 – 20.00 and an artist/participant talk on Saturday 19 March, 14.00. A number of Mendelsohn’s original prints can be seen in Ikon’s exhibition, Varna Road (27 January — 3 April).

Presented by Some Cities in partnership with University of Birmingham
