An imaginative artistic look at conflict. Read More


The Imperial War Museum presents a fresh take on world conflicts, from the First World War to the present day, in Visions of War Above and Below.

The exhibition focuses on the more imaginative results of warfare, presented through a wide range of art works that have been inspired by numerous worldwide conflicts. Ranging from the beautiful to the surreal, the works attempt to represent battles that have taken place above and below, from aerial bombing raids to the murky depths where submariners have risked and lost their lives.

A mixture of both highly detailed works that depict everyday life to bizarre imaginings of aircraft as creatures of the sky, some of the highlights include Alison Wilding's contemporary Drones drawings and Paul Nash's Battle of Germany. Imaginative and revealing, this exhibition boasts some genuinely unique takes on warzones.
