3 September 2014 - Remaking Picasso's Guernica - Maude Casey
A group of artists, activists and academics have formed a collective in order to remake Picasso's great painting Guernica as a large-scale textile banner. Picasso made the painting as his response of outrage to the first ever aerial bombardment of civilians, in 1937, in the little Basque town of Gernika, when the fascist leaders Franco, Hitler and Mussolini field tested the technologies they went on to use in the second world war. We have gathered together to trace parallels between then and now. Hundreds of members of the public have stitched the banner in public sewings in libraries, galleries and conferences, sharing their memories of war and their hopes for peace. I will talk about the process of collaborative making and I will bring the banner itself to illustrate this.
