An opportunity to discuss and debate the new railway era

Train travel retains a romanticism that is lost from much of modern life. A railway journey allows us to visit family and friends, it provides the opportunity to read and is a time to relax and reflect.

In Tate Exchange share your memories from railway journeys and look to the future as we explore the following questions:

Has the speed of railway development changed our understanding of a railway journey?
Does railway development reflect the power of a nation?
Does the power of economy represent the power of the people?

Encounter a photography display featuring the work of Fuchun Wang. Wang is a photographer based in Beijing, China, who has documented Chinese people’s journeys on trains for over 40 years.

With the University of Liverpool.
