‘Beyond Development: Local Visions of Global Poverty’ brings poverty into focus exploring it from the perspectives of marginalised communities around the world. Through three new commissioned short movies by Mexican film-maker Luna Marán, Senegalese rap artist Keyti, and Scottish film-maker Stuart Platt, the exhibition will provide a powerful insight into indigenous communities in Mexico, urban groups in Senegal, and grassroots activists fighting poverty in Glasgow showing how they critique the value systems of capitalism that have manufactured poverty, and how people have formed communities to create spaces both within and outside cities to resist impoverishment.
