Brexit: The mother of all uncertainties

So the British people have voted with a margin of around 4%, a little more than 1 million votes, to leave the European Union (EU). Where this will lead lies somewhere between two absolutely contrasting scenarios.

The heart of the matter: passion, politics and the EU referendum

Both Leave and Remain have appealed to voters’ guts to the extent that reason itself has become suspicious. Emotions will rule the day on 23 June, but at what cost?

Journeys and Exchange: Dutch East India Company

Journeys and Exchange explores cross-cultural elements of the Dutch Golden Age and the history of the Dutch East India Company. This small exhibition includes three exquisitely decorated and illustrated early printed books from UCL Library Special Collections and an image of a Rembrandt print from UCL Art Museum, alongside beautifully painted tiles and vases in the style of Delftware. The ceramics were created specially for the exhibition by participants in an innovative programme of community workshops, and reflect both cultural exchange in the seventeenth century and the workshop participants’ personal stories of migration. The project was the result of a partnership with the Wallace Collection, whose refurbished galleries of Dutch art re-opened to the public in 2012. This exhibition has been curated by UCL PhD student Stefanie van Gemert, who devised and led the workshops with support from UCL Public Engagement and Volunteering Services Units.
