Event Description

IWM London's new exhibition of work by artist photographer Edmund Clark explores the hidden experience of state control during the ‘Global War on Terror’. 

Clark’s work examines the measures taken by states to protect their citizens from the threat of international terrorism.  It considers the issues of security, secrecy, legality and ethics presented by such methods of control. Within the international context of Clark’s work, the exhibition centres on the experiences of UK citizens and residents who were suspected (but never convicted) of terrorist-related activities, and the involvement of the British government in the ‘Global War on Terror’.

In addition to photographs, Clark uses documents, sound, moving images and large multi-media installations to invoke a sensory engagement with the experiences of observation, detention and disorientation induced by state systems of control

Free entry until 28 August 2017
