War Primer 2 - Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin in conversation

Friday 23rd February 2018 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

To celebrate the re-issue of the award-winning War Primer 2, we are proud to welcome Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin for an evening of conversation.

Originally released in 2011 as a limited edition of 100 handmade copies, War Primer 2 earned the artists the 2013 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. The book occupies the pages of Bertolt Brecht’s remarkable 1955 publication War Primer, in which Brecht sought to demystify press images made during World War 2 by juxtaposing them with scathing, witty four-line poems. War Primer 2 is the belated sequel, which shifts the focus to mass media images generated by the “War on Terror”. Broomberg & Chanarin strategically overlay pages from the original with low-resolution images culled from the Internet, questioning the power of images to not only narrate but also to create history. 

The artists will be in conversation with one another reflecting on their work. The talk will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. 

 

Tickets: £8 standard / £5 Foyalty members. When purchasing a Foyalty ticket, please do not forget to bring your Foyalty card with you.
