War and the Body - exhibition and conference, London, June 2010

Our colleagues at the War and Media Network are pleased to announce details of The War and Body Exhibition and Conference in June 2010.

The War and the Body Exhibition explores the intertwining of war and body in the sculpture, drawing, painting, photography and installation art work of contemporary artists. Artists will be discussing their work during a private view and networking evening on the 10th June.

How is the body in war transformed, classified, displayed, utilised, represented and produced through the visual art form? What do these visual forms show us about war and its transformative power? To what extent does the artist embody war through the lived creative process?
