Everyone Has A Story

Everyone Has A Story

Indrė Šerpytytė's work 150MPH is partly the Lithuanian-born artist's way of processing the events of 9/11 and partly a monument to the people who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers.

150MPH is on display at IWM London as part of Age of Terror: Art since 9/11 until 28 May 2018.

What Was the British Role in Afghanistan?
In 2014, British combat troops left Afghanistan. British forces had been in the country since 2001 when they were sent as part of a coalition tasked with intervening in Afghanistan to find the leaders of al-Qaeda after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
