The Koestler Awards is an annual programme encouraging people from the UK’s prison system to communicate and change their lives through art.
The 60th anniversary of the Koestler Awards is being marked with an ambitious exhibition curated by Ai Weiwei, who has himself experienced detention and constant surveillance in China. This year, the exhibition space is being physically transformed to reflect the prison environment.
Daily free tours are available with ex-prisoner exhibition hosts, employed by Koestler Arts, working alongside Southbank Centre Visitor Assistants. The hosts will share their personal experience and insights about the artworks to help visitors understand more about them and the environment that underlies them.
