Swedish artist Emanuel Almborg (b. 1981) presents a new work looking at the role technology plays in our everyday lives.

Learning Matter was developed in collaboration with his mother, educator Agneta Almborg, and a group of 7 to 10-year-olds from a local school in east London. The workshops were documented by Agneta, using black and white photography. Learning Matter considers how material conditions and technologies shape social relations.

The commission is shown alongside two of Almborg’s recent films: The Majority Never Has The Right On Its Side (2013), based on a school founded by socialist educator A.S. Neill in the 1920s, and Talking Hands (2016), which uses archival images of a school for deaf-blind children in Moscow.
