 'A Colour Chart for Killing - the legacy of World War One 'the war to end all wars' exhibition

1st April - 3rd May 2019

The exhibition is featured as part of a year long national program of events named 'Commemoration, Conscience and Conflict' which explores issues around commemoration, conscientious objection and presents hidden histories from the 'Great War' (www.everydaylivesinwar.herts.ac.uk/ccc).

Jude Hutchen is a Bristol artist and RWA exhibitor with experience of working in post war Bosnia and interest in expanding our understanding of and responsibility for contemporary conflicts.  The exhibition presents a subversive and darkly humorous approach to a weighty and difficult topic.

The artist will be talking about the influence of Susan Sontag’s writing on her current exhibition and ambition to subvert the grand theme of ‘War’ in Art History. She will also present how her 'ethical manifesto' guided the plundering of images from the housing market and home decorating culture to provoke questions about personal responsibility for mass violence - through connecting our quality of life to its reliance on the military industrial complex.

This is a free activity as part of Central library's regular program.
