Born in Stoke Newington in 1926, John Berger was one of the
most influential artists, critics and writers of his generation. Ways of Seeing changed our understanding
of art and made us question everything from the public ownership of art to the
male gaze. Tom Overton, who curated Berger’s archive at the British Library and
is working on his biography, discusses his life and work with Andrea Luka Zimmerman, who worked with Berger on her film Estate, A Reverie, based in Haggerston.
