“The latest edition of the ongoing “Core Lecture Series” features contemporary artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan.
In this free virtual talk, Abu Hamdan unpacks his artistic career. His work focuses on sound and its intersection with politics, stemming from his background as a touring musician. Abu Hamdan’s audio investigations have been used as evidence at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal in the United Kingdom, and as advocacy for organizations such as Amnesty International and Defence for Children International.
