Friday Find: Vonnegut at Tate Modern

#FridayFind courtesy of @electricadam, h/t @thebrokedownpal

This giant version of Paul Bacon's Slaughterhouse-Five iconic dust jacket is part of the Tate Modern's exhibition: Conflict, Time, Photography.

This exhibition "focuses on the passing of time, tracing a diverse and poignant journey through over 150 years of conflict around the world, since the invention of photography." The images are not displayed in chronological order, but the works are grouped together depending on how long after the event they were made. Simon Baker, the curator, explains: "The original idea came not from photography but from literature, from great writers who have written about conflict and how they’ve dealt with that problem of looking backwards in time. I was very interested in Kurt Vonnegut’s book Slaughterhouse-Five, which is a key book about the Second World War. Vonnegut makes the protagonist come completely unstuck in time, so the book is completely achronological. We quite like the idea that the viewer of the exhibition will have the same experience as the reader of Vonnegut’s book – they will be jumping around in time." This exhibition ends March 15.
