Re-imagining Metropolis

An interesting event for our London readers: "No understanding between the brain and the hands" is a collaboration between Pocko photographers and illustrators. Inspired by Metropolis, the 1927 silent science fiction film, created by the famed director Fritz Lang, five photographers have collaborated with nine different designers to create interpretations of the film. From strange creatures taking over the concrete jungle, to our understanding of the city as a living organism, the images reinterpret Lang’s urban dystopia and create new versions of the city as we know it today. This Thursday, 5 March, 6 till 9 pm. Kemistry Gallery, 43 Charlotte Road, Shoreditch, London EC2.
