'Everything is different, nothing has changed’ is the first ever sound art installation at Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives and draws on newly digitized oral history recordings of Jewish and Bengali migrants to Tower Hamlets.
Haunting, playful and reflective, the sound works find new resonances between past and present. Join the artists, Alastair Levy, Emily Peasgood and Syma Tariq for an introduction to their work, along with curators Tamsin Bookey and Professor Nadia Valman, postcolonial scholar Dr Rehana Ahmed and broadcaster Alan Dein. Find out more about how the artists approach themes of migration, memory, home and protest in Tower Hamlets through their creative use of archive sound. Come early, explore the installation for yourself and join in the evening’s discussion.
