This learning guide, produced in partnership with cultural and educational charity A New Direction, has been devised for teachers of students at Key Stages 3-5 as an introduction to artists Broomberg & Chanarin and their film ‘The Bureaucracy of Angels’. This film was screened at King’s Cross St. Pancras Tube station in 2017.
The aim is to inform and inspire teachers in secondary schools and colleges, as well as those working with young people towards an Arts Award Bronze, about the commission. This resource also looks at how art and culture can offer new perspectives on issues raised in contemporary society and their relevance to young people who are exploring their own identities, journeys, representation and place within the world.
The resource explores five key themes drawn out from the commission: journeys, representation, journalism and reporting, identity and citizenship, and surveillance.
