Mues Design

Published to accompany the Archive of Modern Conflict’s contribution to the exhibition ‘Conflict, Time, Photography’ at Tate Modern in 2015. The show consists of photographs taken during and after conflicts, with their proximity in time from the conflict becoming more distant as the exhibition goes on.

The book ‘frames’, crops and extracts content from the walls of the Archive’s two rooms that infiltrate the Tate’s exhibition. Its format allows for a more detailed, focused look at this work, juxtaposing animal cruelty in WWI trenches, staged demonstrations of heroism and excerpt of quotes on Amnesia displayed in over-sized text.

‘A photograph of war with an engaging caption draws the viewer into fiction. With the passing of time it becomes accepted as truth and breeds a collective amnesia about a sequence of events or moment in history.’
