Autograph’s mission is to enable the public to explore identity, representation, human rights and social justice through work produced by artists who use photography and film.
Our key aim is to connect audiences with our mission through the presentation of artistic programmes in the UK and internationally. Our strategy to deliver this aim is three-fold:
• Commission new work or present existing work made by contemporary artists which speaks to our mission
• Research, display and publish work which address the subjects of identity, representation, rights and justice
• Encourage the production of new knowledge and learning about this subject matter, both alone and through collaboration with other institutions.
