Edmund Clark, seen here with IWM gallery visitors discussing his War On Terror.
Very thought-provoking day spent at the Imperial War Museum at the Representing Conflict Now conference, contemplating the narratives and spectacle of terror . The programme bought together artists, lawyers, eyewitnesses, writers and academics to discuss how art may contribute to informing social attitudes on matters of justice in a time of global conflict in which laws are sometimes absent.
Still digesting discussions between former Guantánamo detainee and campaigner Moazzam Begg in conversation with Edmund Clark, and artist David Birkin. So grateful for the paper by Professor Anthony Downey as relevant to my own research and always a pleasure to hear the highly entertaining Professor Fred Ritchin doing, in his words, 'the work'.
