    The Disasters of war 1800-2014
    May 28, 2014 - October 6, 2014
    Louvre Lens
    Lens, France

    The exhibition presents a rich set of representations arising from disenchantment with war, considered above all as a dealer in misfortunes from the beginning of the 19th century to our own time. Placed until then at the centre of society's values, it increasingly came to be considered by artists in all its facets, including its most dreadful consequences on human beings, on animals, on the countryside, and on cities and things.
    This multidisciplinary exhibition shows the major milestones of this little known history, through all kinds of media: painting, sculpture, graphic arts, photography, film, video, installations, comic strips, popular prints, newspaper cartoons, and more.
