Body Politics. From Welfare State to Personal Wellbeing
The Hyman Collection has many works which address the human body, mental and physical health, mortality and vulnerability.
Votes for Women
The Hyman Collection consists of an equal number of works by male and female photographers and particularly seeks to support young female phoographers. One theme of the photographs in the collection by women is identity and self-identity. In the centenary year of women getting the vote, this exhibition explores the various roles played by self-portraiture and women's photographs of other women.
