Representing Conflict Now - Panel Discussion with Edmund Clark

Imperial War Museum
17 June, 11:00am – 5:00pm

A series of free pop-up events as well as talks and panel discussions will examine how art can challenge understanding and change social attitudes to war and justice.

Debate: Art, Justice and Terror  I  A day of talks and panel discussions

Curated by London College of Communication

11am - 1.30pm and 2.30 - 5pm  I   Adult day pass £12, Concession day pass £8

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.

Welcome address: Dr Christopher Stewart, Programme Director of Photography, London College of Communication

Art and Justice  I  11am - 1.30pm

How can art help bring justice to those directly affected by war? Can art question accountability? How might art manifest in the law itself? This morning session focusing on Art and Justice starts with a keynote by Professor Anthony Downey and features talks by Reprieve lawyer Cori Crider, former detainee and campaigner Moazzam Begg in conversation with Edmund Clark, and artist David Birkin. A consecutive panel discussion with the speakers is moderated by Max Houghton, Senior Lecturer at London College of Communication.

Art and Terror  I  2.30 - 5pm

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.
