National presents Time Europe: Then & Now


Preview: Jack Foley

THE National Theatre is currently presenting an exhibition which showcases the iconic images of key moments in European history, that have been featured in TIME’s annual summer special issue European Journey: Then & Now, (published on Monday, August 11).

The exhibition chronicles how Europe has changed and focuses on sites of momentous historic events where TIME photographers have returned to capture the scene in the present day to juxtapose the image against the same scene decades ago.

 

Images include, the Berlin Wall, 1989; Gdansk, 1980; the Soviet invasion of Budapest, 1956; the Bloody Sunday massacres in Londonderry, 1972; London in the swinging 60s; student riots in Paris, 1968; the Russian coup, 1991; and Grozny, 1995.

Eric Pooley, editor of TIME Europe said: "This is a landmark event for TIME as it will be the first-ever photo exhibition of its kind that the magazine has brought to London and will be a showcase of the magazine’s rich photo-journalistic coverage."

The National Gallery is located on London's South Bank and is open Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 11pm, all year round (except for bank holidays - check with the Information Desk for details).

The Information Desk in the main entrance foyer is open during these times.

Tel 020 7452 3400 for more information - the Box Office is open from 10am to 8pm for callers in person.
