History of Art - Dr Claire O'Mahony

Amidst the commemorations of 1914 and 1944, we will look at how artists and designers represented and participated in the First and Second World Wars. Art and graphic design served to inform, to persuade and to sustain the home front; camouflage deceived in the battle; housing was invented amidst ruins. Visual creativity and design practice played an important part in the experience of conflict and hopes for peacetime. Dr Claire O'Mahony is Course Director of the Master's in the History of Design.
