BEN URI PIONEERING A DIGITAL FUTURE TO MAXIMISE IMPACT

Immigration / Refugees / Artists Research: The compilation of a unique resource researching and recording the Hitler Emigres to Britain within the visual arts.

This unique long term project is well under way with over 300 research profiles published and a further 900 candidates from over 100 countries in progress. All made their mark enriching British art and visual culture.
