Television Delivers People | Mark Godfrey

Open Lecture


Focusing on Richard Hamilton’s use of appropriated imagery from television, Tate Modern curator and art historian Mark Godfrey investigates how the pioneer of Pop Art later reflected on contemporaneous political events – ranging from the Civil Rights movement, Northern Ireland, the Thatcher era to the Gulf War – in works such as: Kent State 1970, The citizen, 1982, Treatment Room, 1983 and War Games 1992.
