A sculpture by Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger has been unveiled on a London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) campus.
Located outside LSE’s Saw Swee Hock Student Centre, The World Turned Upside Down is a large political globe, 4m in diameter, with nation states and borders outlined, but with the twist of being inverted.
Most of the landmasses now lie in the "bottom" hemisphere with the countries and cities re-labelled for this new orientation.
Mr Wallinger said: "The UN is the authority as to the names and borders.
"This is the world as we know it from a different viewpoint. Familiar, strange, and subject to change."
The project was curated by Contemporary Art Society Consultancy, which has worked with LSE for 13 years to deliver art in the public realm for its campus in central London.
LSE director Minouche Shafik said: "This bold new work by Mark Wallinger encapsulates what LSE is all about."
"We are committed to tackling the biggest global challenges through our research and teaching, and this means seeing the world from different and unfamiliar points of view," she added.
