Bethany Kane is an independent curator, photographer, Founder of Lost Generation Projects and Programme Coordinator of @formatfestival. Her project ‘Lost Generation IV’ was commissioned as part of the Forge Artist Open Call Programme, which invited 12 West Midlands artists and curators to make new bodies of work for Blast! Festival and take part in a mentorship programme.
.
‘Lost Generation IV’ explores contemporary youth culture and the political animosity amongst the younger generation within West Bromwich. @beth_kane_ is interested in developing work with those who fit within the demographic known as ‘Generation Z’. For this edition of Lost Generation, Beth has collaborated with three students from Sandwell College (Miles, Tyler and Zac) encouraging them to use photography to explore their feelings towards current society and politics: from the uncertainty of Brexit to the dominance of social media; the ever-increasing cost of living and the rise in university fees; to the fear of the effect of developing technologies on today’s jobs market.
.
‘Lost Generation IV’ provokes discussion and debate on what the future may hold for young men in West Bromwich, Britain and beyond.
