Architecture of War
Through IWM’s art collection, Architecture of War presents artists’ responses to the impact of warfare on landscape and environments.
The selection spans almost a century of British art, from the First World War to the present day, and explores themes such as construction, destruction, cities and interiors.
Some artworks show the united purpose of humans and machines in factories, others show tension in divided cities. Many artists have used ruined buildings to symbolise the effects of warfare on people. Others show the claustrophobic conditions of control rooms and shelters.
Architecture of War displays oil paintings, prints, sketches, drawings, watercolours and photographs by artists including William Orpen, Ronald Searle, William Scott and Langlands and Bell.
