Tate Modern Talk

Curator's tour and private view: Conflict, Time, Photography

Near Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin

Curator of photography at Tate Simon Baker leads an hour-long tour of this exhibition concerned with the relationship between photography and sites of conflict over time.

Conflict, Time, Photography includes several different perspectives which artists using cameras have brought to the sites they have depicted over different passages of time: from works made a few moments or one day after an event, to those made one year later or 10, 20, 30 and 100 years later. Subjects covered include conflicts from all over the world in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, including key themes of landscape, ruination, reconstruction and the human cost of conflict.

Following the tour visitors have an out-of-hours opportunity to explore the exhibition themselves.
