In connection with the ‘Reconciliations’ exhibitions, and bringing together some of the artists showing there with other artists whose work deals with reconciliation in the broadest sense. This public discussion reflects on a wide range of reconciliations – or not – including between art and atrocity, both past and present; the artist’s internal conflict during the making of work; between art and politics, art and psychology and between elements such as abstraction and documentation.
The event is part of an exhibition, Reconciliations running in parallel at the Exchange, Bush House, King’s College London from 1 November-1 December 2018, and at the Knapp Gallery, Regent’s University London, from 1 November 2018-19 January 2019. The exhibitions are part of a major AHRC-funded project, ‘Art & Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community’, Art and Reconciliation explored the politics of reconciliation across the Western Balkans and beyond from a variety of perspectives in three strands, History, Discourse and Practice.
