Thomas Gardner in panel for UAL Research Fortnight
Monday 11 March 2019
18:00pm – 20:00pm
Lecture Theatre C | London College of Communication
Free and open to all | Book via Eventbrite
As researchers, writers and creative practitioners why do we choose to make work in the aftermath of atrocity? Is there a potential for the creative process and its artefacts to enable human connection when it is all but lost or destroyed? How do we engage with the issue of ethics in researching, writing and making post-atrocity artefacts from the remnants of dark periods in history?
These are some of the questions the panel will discuss at this event. Panel members will also give a brief presentation on their own research and practice and its connections with the Holocaust.
