Machine in a Void: World War 1 & the Graphic Arts

Machine in a Void: World War 1 & the Graphic Arts runs through May 23, 2010 at the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas.

About the exhibition –

Several years in the making, the Spencer-organized Machine in a Void will present nearly 150 works of graphic art made during the years of the First World War (1914-1918), with a post-script on the art of the decade following the war. By invoking the perspective of primarily European artists, the exhibition will bring attention to the substantial roles played by the graphic arts during WWI (1914–1918) as a tool for official propaganda and as means of voicing individual responses to the war ranging from documentation to dissent.
