Murals and graffiti – military life, power and subversion
by Wayne Cocroft, Danielle Devlin, John Schofield and Roger JC Thomas
The integrated colour illustrations will be central to the narrative, accompanied by five essays that together describe the historical and wider context of military wall art, their form, meaning and significance, as well as the conservation dilemmas they present. Examples of wall art will be mostly World War II and post-World War II, with Cold War examples highlighting the cultural differences between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, and within NATO between British and American service traditions, and between military operations and the protest movement.
The emphasis throughout will be on diversity – using striking visual images to express this archaeology of modern warfare.
