Exhibition - London
1968 on Record: A Year of Revolution
1968 was a year of change,
excitement and upheaval around the globe. War was waged in Vietnam,
students all over the world rose against authority, the Black Power
movement grew in strength and political leaders fell victim to
assassins. At the same time records were released, plays performed, and
sporting and cultural achievements broke new ground.
This small exhibition uses
images and sound recordings from the British Library's collections to
evoke the flavour of a fascinating and pivotal year of change.
Featuring Magnum photographers Bruno Barbey and Philip Jones Griffiths.
Dates: 8 February - 30
Library, 96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB, United Kingdom
