This Is Civilisation

Artist and critic Matthew Collings sets off on a journey across the world to investigate how past culture have shaped our civilisation. He explores the inspiration behind diverse art movements spanning different time periods and continents.

From the hallways of the UK’s Tate Gallery, to the temples of ancient Egypt, China and other locations, Collings shows how the passions of emotion, money and politics have shaped art through the ages.
