Myth and Machine

The Wolfsonian Florida International University, Miami Beach

The First World War in Visual Culture. Paintings, sculpture, posters, books, photographs, and many rare items

sintesi del comunicato stampa

The First World War was radically unlike any earlier armed conflict. On the occasion of the centenary of the start of the war, The Wolfsonian-FIU exhibition shows how artists, designers, and filmmakers responded to the unprecedented qualities of the war: new technologies, from aircraft to chemical weapons to tanks; the massive mobilization of armaments industries on the home front; the grinding everyday experiences of soldiers in trenches along stationary fronts; and the immense scale of destruction that the war entailed. The exhibition focuses on the role of myth in giving comprehensible form to the shattering realities of the war, and on the relationship between humans and machines as a key theme of wartime visual culture. Among the paintings, sculpture, posters, books, and photographs included are many rare and unique items that will offer an unfamiliar view of a conflict that changed the world. The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated companion book, with essays by Jon Mogul and Peter Clericuzio. Opening on Veteran's Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2014.
