The Kibbo Kift Kindred at Whitechapel Gallery - London • 27 images

Only in town for a few days luckily for me I was able to catch this tiny but powerful exhibition about The Kibbo Kift Kindred at Whitechapel Gallery. It's full of ephemera, costumes, audio interviews that show the commitment to the growth of the human spirit utilizing a combination of ancient civilizations borrowed beliefs and customs in modern times from 1920-1932.  A must see show for anyone interested in reconnecting with nature and believing in basic human rights.
