Photographs from the Argus Archives
Brighton has a rich history as a contested political space. Exploring the archives of Brighton’s long established newspaper BPB12 curators have worked with Argus photojournalists to select compelling images from over 40 years of local protests.
Displayed around the city and in what is now known as Brighton’s cultural quarter, in partnership with The Basement, the selection teases out recurrent concerns for residents and visitors to the city through pictures of CND marches, student sit-ins, opposition to Fascist demonstrations, protests against tax avoidance and resistance to cuts to education funding.
