Over the next 17 years the urban fabric of Camden, arguably London’s most bustling and diverse of boroughs, will be reshaped dramatically to make way for the HS2 train line. The major construction works planned will require hundreds of residents to be rehoused. Camden Council invited artist and anthropologist Liz Hingley to develop a project with, about and for those who are being affected.
Curated by The Wiener Library in Russell Square, this exhibition at the Swiss Cottage Library explores aspects of resistance against Nazism and various manifestations of this resistance, from instances of organised rebellion, to examples of anti-Nazi jokes.

In Spring 2017, rarely displayed artworks from the Camden Art Collection were 3D-printed to provide a new way of looking at this fascinating collection. These 3D prints formed a ‘Museum in a Box’ which went on tour to Camden’s libraries and Great Ormond Street Hospital. During workshops children and their families could touch the 3D models and listen to artists’ audio interpretations of each object. The combination of the objects and audio then inspired stories, poems and sounds in response to the collection. Local resident Angela shares her experience of taking part in the Museum in a Box workshops with her son Lorenzo.
