Saatchi’s latest major exhibition explores art’s role in social satire and how political uncertainty has influenced contemporary artists globally.

From 28 September to 13 January, 26 contemporary artists will display there range of media (collage, caricatures, photography and installation) to show how satire can provide both light relief as well as unsettling commentary on the political situation today.

Some of the most exciting artists will expose 21st century anxieties created by modern obsessions. These include the Turner prize nominee, Richard Billingham, whose photography series “Ray’s a laugh” confronts the reality of poverty and Aleksandra Mir who parodies newspapers by crudely drawing them with children’s tools which brings a new meaning to fake news.

This exhibition highlights the importance of art and satire in dissection power structures, questioning societal norms and visualising political unrest.
