Project: Politics & Olympics

During the summer of 2012, Free Word hosted Politics and Olympics: Ideals and Realities, an exhibition and programme of events that offered alternative perspectives on the Games, exploring how political and commercial pressures have buffeted the ideals and values of the Olympic movement. We also ran a dedicated blog alongside the exhibition, filled with articles, images, stories and ideas that explored contemporary issues connected to the Games that emerged throughout the summer.
