Save Event: Forces/Fields

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Forces/Fields: Three works on conflict, militarism and their legacies
Wakeful, Anne Robinson, 2018
The Struggle Part II: Opening Up, Rachel Garfield, 2015
Thursday War, Margareta Kern, 2019
Followed by discussion: artists in conversation with Professor Rachel Woodward, Newcastle University.



Examining the persistent and pervasive presence of war in all of our lives: each artist engages with the complexities of militarism and conflict: Robinson ‘listening to the past’ through fragmented intergenerational memory, Garfield asking questions about 20thcentury certainties through subjective experiences in military outposts and Kern interrogating the presence of ships and war games too close to home. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Rachel Garfield, Margareta Kern and Anne Robinson in conversation with Professor Rachel Woodward (Newcastle University)
