The Age Of Terror exhibition at the Imperial War Museum look at how artists have portrayed war and conflict since the terrorist attacks in 2001.
The exhibition will feature 50 works in the mediums of film, sculpture, painting, photography and prints, and will show different viewpoints that are not always shown in the mainstream media.
First and second-hand accounts will challenge our perceptions and understanding of the nature of modern warfare, the impact that security and surveillance has had on our everyday lives, and highlight the continuing state of emergency in which we still find ourselves seventeen years later.
The exhibition will include works by more than 40 British and international artists including Gerhard Richter, Jenny Holzer, Mona Hatoum, Alfredo Jaar, Coco Fusco and Jake and Dinos Chapman. Highlights include Ivan Navarro's The Twin Towers, Grayson Perry's Dolls at Dungeness September 11th 2001 and Ai Weiwei's Surveillance Camera with Plinth.
