DIANA MATAR: ART, JUSTICE AND TERROR, TALK AT THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM LONDON

17 June 2017 2:30 - 5 PM

A series of talks and panel discussions in response to Edmund Clark: War on Terror. The programme will bring 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.

How can art represent a domestic experience of terror as a consequence of distant war? How can it help us to understand legal procedures enacted upon individuals for reasons of international security, which can in themselves be acts of terror? This afternoon session focusing on Art and Terror starts with a keynote by leading US writer Professor Fred Ritchin and features talks by IWM research curator Hilary Roberts, counter terrorism researcher Raffaello Pantucci, Professor Eyal Weizman, and photographic artist Diana Matar. A consecutive panel discussion with the speakers is moderated by Stephen Mayes, Director of the Tim Hetherington Trust.

EDGAR MARTINS: SILOQUIES AND SOLILOQUIES ON DEATH AT THE GUIMARAES INTERNATIONAL ARTS CENTRE 28 JANUARY - 4 JUNE 2017

A new exhibition by Edgar Martins at the José de Guimarães International Arts Centre presenting the culmination of a project prepared over a long period of time, which was featured in two exhibitions in Lisbon, at the MAAT and at Cristina Guerra Contemporary Art. In this series, Edgar Martins engages the complexities of the language of photography by offering us a soliloquy – the literary and dramaturgic thing that it is – on death.

By associating images from the archives of the National Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences (Portugal) – photos, drawings, and charts, for example – to original images, the exhibition constructs a unique moment in which we are called to consider photography as the mapping of death.

JOAKIM ESKILDSEN: EXHIBITION REVIEW ON PHOTOMONITOR

A review of Joakim Eskildsen's series Nordic Signs and The Roma Journeys, coinciding with the artist's current solo show at Purdy Hicks Gallery.

"If the story of Nordic Signs is one of precocity and enterprise, that of The Roma Journeys is of dedication and persistence. Traveling by now with his wife, the writer and conveniently brilliant linguist Cia Rinne, Eskildsen spent 2000-06 not just documenting the Roma communities in seven European countries in turn, but living with them, befriending them and learning their ways, enabling him to bring warmth and inter-connections to his portrayals of widely stigmatised and disparate communities. If the sense of interiority in Nordic Signs might seem to emerge naturally from Eskildsen’s background, its achievement in The Roma Journeys is contrastingly earned." Paul Carey-Kent
