Art as Political Protest

Spanning from Picasso’s iconic Guernica to the works of contemporary artists like Georg Baselitz and Adrian Ghenie, we will look at how key political events of the 20th century have shaped art. Sometimes acting as commentators of an era and, at other times, taking on the roles of vigorous activists implementing change themselves, all of the artists we will look at have created thought-provoking art that brings to light difficult subjects. Our particular focus will be on the aftermath of World War II and how some contemporary artists still find themselves working in a ‘post-war’ era.
