What other art spaces in London would you recommend our audiences look into?

Flat 70 is a recent art space founded by Anthony and Senam Badu.
198 Contemporary Arts & Learning, they are doing wonders at establishing intergenerational access to arts education.
Autograph, one of the longer-standing spaces in London that continues to be incredibly important.
Invoking the global Black uprising, this conversation between Margarida Waco and Awa Konaté examines Anti-Blackness and the different ways in which institutional and structural violence against Black and Brown bodies is normalised and manifested across the Nordics, i.e. Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland in particular. The conversation draws upon Scandinavian colonial history and Denmark’s role in slave trading as frameworks allowing for a critical examination of the cultural and political languages and iconographies associated with the Nordic Paradigm in an attempt to challenge, and finally dismantle the concept of Nordic Exceptionalism.
