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.

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.
