Think you know London pretty well? The Another London exhibition at the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow is inviting audiences to look at it through a stranger’s eyes instead with a collection of photos taken between the 1930s-70s by international photographers, aiming to show the city ‘from outside’. As well as showing how much the city changed over 50 years, the exhibition looks at British quirkiness and eccentricities, which are a lot more obvious to someone outside looking in.

However, if this all sounds very familiar, that’s probably because you saw it at the Tate Britain back in 2012.

For those of you who missed it and aren’t heading to Russia any time soon, see more at mamm-mdf.ru
