Event Description
Join us at the Spencer Museum of Art for a multidisciplinary panel discussion of the exhibition Machine in a Void: World War I and the Graphic Arts. This exhibition will be largely drawn from the permanent collection of the Spencer Museum of Art and will include material that may provoke discussions of the rise of ironic and ambivalent attitudes toward war and the defenselessness of innocents in the face of modern war machines. By invoking the perspective of primarily European artists, the exhibition will bring attention to the substantial roles played by the graphic arts as a tool for official propaganda and as means of voicing individual responses to the war ranging from documentation to dissent / Enrollment required / $ / Class sponsored by KU Continuing Education.
