To mark Jewish Book Week, join us for a specially curated Pop-Up display in the UCL Art Museum by Professor Michael Berkowitz. Professor Berkowitz's new book Jews and Photography in Britain is the first-ever historical investigation of its type, beginning in the mid-nineteenth century and closing with the Queen's controversial photo-shoot with Annie Leibovitz in 2007. While little noticed by scholars and critics, the factor of ethnic difference in photography has been critical in the development of a distinctive visual culture in the UK. Professor Berkowitz will be showing material relating to his book as well as choosing items from the UCL Art Museum collection to put on display.
