The Wartime Art Archives

CFCP New Voices of Ireland Series 9

The New Voices of Ireland Series aims to present works and practices by migrant and culturally artists to their local peers and broader audiences in Ireland and to invite migrant artists to take part in the current social and political debates. Reflecting upon the imperialist brutality of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the dramatic effects of the Syrian war, and the situation in Palestine, to name some of the ongoing conflicts, the New Voices of Ireland Series of 2022 focuses on the gloom reality that peace, our democratic values, the right to enjoy our lives and fruits of our work, all taken for granted in the Western part of the world and the Global North, are unique achievements that if not protected, can disappear in no time when exposed to destructive, totalitarian and extremists’ forces.

The Wartime Art Archives is the 2022 edition of the New Voices of Ireland Series, run annually by the Centre for Creative Practices. This year’s programme explores artistic records and reactions to the horrific realities of the recent invasion of Ukraine, the war in Syria, the occupation of Palestine, and other forms of wars, including the sex war and the drugs war.
