As part of the MCA’s Conversation Starters weekend, find out from the next generation their perspectives about the issues that matter to them most through this short video made by MCA Youth Committee.

Humans of Genext is a digital project which the MCA Youth Committee have been working on for the last two years. Inspired by the photographic documentary project Humans of New York, Humans of Genext explores the political, cultural and aesthetic beliefs of young people through a series of curated questions developed by the Youth Committee and inspired by current MCA exhibitions and artists.

This short film explores the motivations behind their project and documents the making of the most recent Humans of Genext chapter in response to the work of Kader Attia, filmed recently at the Genext event on 23 April 2017.

Questions asked explored ideas of repair, memory, the role of the media and societal acceptance.
