The British Council

We support peace and prosperity by building connections, understanding and trust between people in the UK and countries worldwide.

We work directly with individuals to help them gain the skills, confidence and connections to transform their lives and shape a better world in partnership with the UK. We support them to build networks and explore creative ideas, to learn English, to get a high-quality education and to gain internationally recognised qualifications.

Since 1938 the British Council has been collecting works of art and today has almost 9,000 paintings, prints and drawings, sculpture, photography and multi-media artworks showcasing the best of UK-based contemporary visual artists. 

The British Council’s Collection of moving image works sits at the intersection of art, technology and history featuring contemporary, ground-breaking presentations of style, aesthetics and technical innovation. 

The Collection features works from legacy artist filmmakers such as Gillian Wearing, Elizabeth Price, Jane and Louise Wilson and John Akomfrah; well-known contemporary visual artists lesser known for video artwork such as Jeremy Deller and Charlotte Prodger; early works from those who have since become household names in film such as Sam Taylor-Johnson and Steve McQueen; and recent acquisitions of those at the forefront of UK and global artists’ moving image: Hetain Patel, Larry Achiampong, Samson Kambalu and Lawrence Lek.
