The Graphic Witness exhibition at the Drawing Room in south London is showcasing works from the 1930s up until today.
I wholeheartedly recommend it. The exhibition focuses on work that acts as a political response and a recording of unjust events.
We live in a society that encourages us to be disconnected. Conflict, war and meaningless death have become normalised. This exhibition seeks to make you become a witness to important events.
The theme of disconnect runs through the exhibition.
One drawing by Nidhal Chamekh, #icare, (above) shows four men sat on a fence, similar to those in Calais. Around them is a sketch of a blueprint of an antique early flying machine.
Above all the theme of freedom and struggle shapes the exhibition.
The centerpiece is a drawing by Joy Gerrard of a Donald Trump rally in Chicago, USA. With this image, you are no long a disconnected bystander but a part of the moment.
The exhibition has a section where the featured artists have compiled a list of books, sounds and films that have influenced their work. This means you can continue exploring these themes once you leave too.
