Art, Conflict and Context

Art, Conflict and Context

The Work of John Keane

Since Gulf War 1, digital reporting on television and online has reshaped how we see conflicts. Against the immediacy of media imagery, Art, Conflict and Context provides an alternative perspective on war and its effects, drawing widely on John Keane’s work including the struggle with Daesh and the impact of Guantanamo Bay.

To open this new exhibition, John discusses the influence of the media on his work with the curator, Jane Quinn.

Launch of Images of Conflict site

The Images of Conflict site launches alongside a dissertation which is looking at the imagery of conflict since 1991. It is self-standing, but interactive, bringing interviews with artists, photographers, curators and members of the audience to a discussion about the role of images of conflict in an era of asymmetrical warfare.
