Art School on Brexit (2019)

Brexit, previoulsy named the Oxford dictionary’s word of the year, has been a force for division in the UK since the
referendum in 2016. A political event unlike no other, it appears to have split the nation into remainers and leavers, with no time for one anothers argument. Everyone seems to have something to say about it, the hot topic for turning family Christmas dinners sour.

‘Over three years on, and fast approaching the end of the decade with a general election lingering, why not ask a younger student generation, whom almost unanimously voted remain, what they have to say on these turbulent times?’

Each art school student was asked “How will Brexit affect you as an art student?” following my interest on the assumed liberalism of art school goers. They were also handed the European flag and asked to pose as they wished.
