farhad ahrarnia in 'bringing the war home'

Wincester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media
winchester shool of art
22 october - 22 november 2013

 

Peter van Agtmael - Farhad Ahrarnia - Sama Alshaibi - Lisa Barnard - Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin - Edmund Clark - Kay May - Asef Ali Mohammad - Christopher Sims

The exhibition challenges the conventions of traditional war photography, in which dramatic moments of combat are captured by heroic male photojournalists. Instead, the nine artists featured offer new approaches and techniques.

These include the viewpoints of women, non-combatants, and Iraqis and Afghans; amateur and non-official imagery such as soldiers’ graffiti and personal digital photos; and work reflecting the far-reaching effects of war away from the battle zone.

The exhibition opening is on Tuesday 22 October 2013, 5pm to 7pm and then continuing until Friday 22 November 2013. If you wish to attend the Tuesday opening please RSVP to A.J.Davis@soton.ac.uk.

FARHAD AHRARNIA, US SOLDIER III, 30X23 CM, 2008
