Descrizione del libro

13 ottobre 2013
Stories of artwork inspired by the experience of political conflict in Northern Ireland. The book is illustrated throughout with with more than 100 original photographs of sculpture, installations, community projects and paintings. The introduction by Jan Jordan, Durban University, South Africa, says, 'This story has resonance with many artists living in conflicted societies around the globe, with all of us who value our dreams and hopes, appreciate our loves, and fear the parochial small minded interests of those that claim to represent us.' The author born in the divided city of Belfast, charts his journey through the political conflict known as the Troubles, his involvement in the Irish Republican Movement and imprisonment in the H.Blocks, Maze Prison. The book explores international examples of how art has been used as a tool for peace and progress. The author then describes important elements of his journey into art projects that are mostly related to and inspired by issues of political conflict, peace and attempts to overcome cultural and sectarian barriers. He provides illustrated examples of sculpture, painting, installation work and mass community art projects that address issues of political and social discord. This art book is useful to those from any part of the world who are interested in exploring issues of conflict and peace through art.

5.0 su 5 stelle An excellent and moving account. 18 agosto 2014
Di Mark W. Meehan, PhD - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Raymond's story is unique and compelling. I have used his work in my class on Global Issues. Not only does this book provide an excellent, personal account of life within a global conflict, but it also points students toward an activist, engaged approach that can bring change through art. A wonderful book and a wonderful person.
