A British Sign Language tour of the exhibition Claudia Andujar: The Yanomami Struggle led by John Wilson, exclusively for Deaf and hard of hearing visitors, highlighting key artworks, using BSL. 

An exhibition devoted to the life and work of Claudia Andujar and her collaboration with the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous peoples, who she has spent her life documenting and defending.

Over 200 photographs, an audio-visual installation and a series of drawings by the Yanomami are brought together for the exhibition. They reflect the dual nature of Andujar’s five-decade relationship with them, highlighting her commitment to both art and activism. Photos from her first six years living with the Yanomami, showing how she grappled with visually interpreting a complex culture, will feature alongside imagery produced during periods of direct activism, as she used her camera and archive as a tool for political change.
