John Berger at 90: The Verso podcast in collaboration with London Review Bookshop


John Berger has revolutionised our understanding of art, politics, language, media, society and everyday experience since his landmark book and TV series Ways of Seeing over forty years ago.

As the internationally influential critic, novelist, film-maker, dramatist and storyteller enters his ninetieth year, the latest Verso podcast in collaboration with the London Review Bookshop celebrates his life and work.

Gareth Evans is joined by Tom Overton, editor of Landscapes: John Berger on Art, Yasmin Gunaratnam, editor of A Jar of Wild Flowers, and Mike Dibb, film-maker and director of Ways of Seeing, to explore Berger's art and politics, the evolution of his own way of seeing, and its enduring relevance.
