London College of Communication’s Screen School presents Beyond 2001: New Horizons, an exhibition that explores how activating the archive can creatively enable the development of new work and inform ideas.
Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University’s Archives and Special Collections Centre, students will produce and show work alongside invited artists and academics that offer new perspectives inspired by archive material from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The exhibition will open with the inaugural Stanley Kubrick Lecture from Peter Kramer and Launch Night on Wednesday 17 January – free to all.
MA Advertising graduates Min-hyung Choi and Valentin Guiod have received wide support for their recent ‘Living is Winning’ advertising campaign – challenging the perception of refugees in the media.
The ‘Living is Winning’ campaign, which launched in September, was created on behalf of La Cimade, an independent humanitarian organisation which protects refugees’ rights. Consisting of a series of posters, 3 films and a campaign website, the campaign has been praised by the French media, social network users and industry professionals. Valentin Guiod worked with Josiane Paris on the project, and Min-Hyung Choi with Adam & Eve London.
Course Leader for LCC’s MA Advertising course Dr Cui Su told us: “They worked with an award-winning photojournalist using real news images and did everything off their own back, from start to finish. This included not just making the advert, but also press releases and social media – which is quite rare for a creative team. They are speaking to Olympic athletes for possible collaborations. This is really inspiring work.”
We got hold of Min-hyung and Valentin for a catch up on their campaign and post-grad life…
As a communications College made up of Design, Media and Screen Schools, our students and staff certainly aren’t shy of sharing on social media – with hundreds of photos taken at LCC posted on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook each week.
With 2017 coming to an end, we decided we’d round-up some of our favourite posts on Instagram from the past 12 months, from photos of our buildings from the Elephant & Castle peninsula to images of our classrooms bathed in the evening light, snaps of our facilities and stunning sunsets captured from our tower block.
