At War

On our second day in Barcelona, we went to CCCB for the At War exhibition. Tremendous – it would have repaid several return visits. Superb organisation, bringing out different themes. Very wide-ranging: included paintings, sculpture, photography, film and installation art.

At War ‘takes a long, hard look at what war is and how it affects the individual and society. This exhibition dissects the idea into discrete themes, beginning with the ‘socialisation of violence’ and how childhood games, fashion, entertainment and advertising affect our attitude to war, right the way through to ‘memory’ and the legacy of conflict’.

Bought the catalogue.
