Both Sides Now 3: Screenings in East Asia

Both Sides Now explores the cultural, political and social connections and differences between the UK and China & Hong Kong.

Our programme of UK-based artists will be shown across East Asia. Artists include: Adam Chodzko, Alia Syed, Ben Rivers, Charlie Tweed, Chooc Ly Tan, Iris Zaki, Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, Megan Broadmeadow and U. Kanad Chakrabarti.

The East Asia screening programme has been curated by Jamie Wyld and Moritz Cheung, videoclub.
