Exhibition - Beyond Development: Local Visions of Global Poverty
Stuart Platt: No Patter Merchant
Language is political. It grants or denies status and power. It creates the poverty of expression, creating a ‘cast system’ of language – a place of not being able to communicate or express yourself in your own language and having to learn/adopt another form of expression. This film attempts to use the wonderful words of Tom Leonard to highlight the poverty of expression and the colonisation of language. ‘Proper English’ is never political: discuss.
