This is an online event

Join Peter Kennard, Britain’s most influential political artist, and Kate Hudson historian and General Secretary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, to discuss how art changes minds.

In 1963 a CND poster titled Stop Nuclear Suicide, F H K Henrion integrated a mushroom cloud with a macabre grinning skull. Twenty years later artist Peter Kennard wanted to inject renewed meaning into images of nuclear war which, he felt, had become clichéd. The photomontage Never Again combines the images of a mushroom cloud and a skeleton in order to reconnect the explosion with its horrific consequences for human life. The poster adds the exact dates and times at which nuclear bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, underscoring the fact that they were real events.

This event is free. Suggested Donation £4.

Peter KennardWith a career spanning fifty years, Peter Kennard (born 1949) is without a doubt Britain’s most important political artist and its leading practitioner of photomontage. His adoption of photomontage in the late 1960s renewed its association with radical politics, and his images now define the response to conflict and crisis since that period, particularly for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
