Remaking Picasso’s Guernica a banner part 1

Research output: Non-textual outputDigital or Visual Products


The first of three documentary films on Remaking Picasso’s Guernica a banner. The banner was created between 2012 and 2014. A collective of 12 artists and activists from Brighton, UK developed the project. The individual shapes that form the banner have been sewn in place through a series of 14 public sewings held in England and India. The banner makers noticed an interesting dialogue develop between the sewer, the stitch and the cloth, through which a temporary placement of fabric became permanent, and individuals’ actions contributed to a collective statement against aerial attacks on civilian populations.
