About this Programme

In this programme, art and design historian Nicola Ashmore explores four remakings of Pablo Picasso’s Guernica in the twenty-first century and reveals an important and on-going dialogue between art, action, collaboration and creation.

The local and global politics manifest in these individual remakings is heard through the voices of those who participated in the four individual projects.

The programme will explore the artistic opposition to governments; witnessing suffering; and the value and currency of Guernica in the twenty-first century.

This programme is authored by Dr. Nicola Ashmore, University of Brighton and co-produced with The Arts & Culture Unit.

It will be broadcast as part of the second series of Modulations: Broadcasting Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, on Resonance 104.4fm.
