The underground post industrial setting of The Laundry Building in London’s east end provides the perfect backdrop for contemporary work that considers what it means to make in today’s bleak economic and political landscape. Working as an artists today in London is undoubtedly challenging, and these emerging artists address the problems with a dynamic and politicised vigour.

The students work across the full scope of media available to artists today, including, painting, sculpture, video, performance, and interactive works etc. Their interests are diverse and address a range of ideas including identity, celebrity, chaos and excess. What brings these works together is a shared sense of urgency, the art shown in Our Laughter Will Drown Your Sorrows is work that needs to be made and needs to be shown.

As part of the exhibition there will be a collaborative fanzine produced and manufactured on site by the students themselves.
