Emma Crichton-Miller

Aftermath: Art in the Wake of World War One

Tate Britain, 5th June to 23rd September

This exhibition, marking the centenary of the 1918 armistice, explores the art that emerged in Britain, France and Germany between 1916 and 1932, as Europe took stock. Memorial sculptures by Käthe Kollwitz and others sought new language to do justice to catastrophic loss. Surrealists and Dadaists, like Hannah Höch, Max Ernst and Edward Burra, deployed collage and photomontage to confront the dismembering of people and civilisations. German satirists George Grosz and Otto Dix (below) showed a world twisted and betrayed; others sought salvation in classicism or vibrant modernity.

Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain

The Hepworth Wakefield, 22th June to 7th October

The Hepworth looks at Lee Miller, fashion icon, surrealist muse and war correspondent, who used her camera to document the birth of surrealism in Britain during the 1930s. Mistress to Man Ray and wife to British surrealist Roland Penrose, she was a vital creative link between the European pioneers of surrealism—Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, René Magritte—and British experimenters like Eileen Agar, Leonora Carrington and Henry Moore.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s June issue: Isabel Hilton, Rana Mitter, Kerry Brown and Yuan Ren debate the rise of China and what it means for the UK and the rest of the world. Hilton argues that China’s ideas could dominate the next century, just as American ideas dominated the last. Rana Mitter charts how those ideas have developed from Confucius to modern political theorist Wang Huning. Kerry Brown explores how Australia is dealing with the rise of China, by reimagining itself as an Asian country and drifting from the US. Yuan Ren asks whether China’s young people will forge a new path for the country in the coming decades. Elsewhere in the issue: Steve Bloomfield explores Jeremy Corbyn’s foreign policy, asking whether Britain would become a silent protester on the global sideline; Jonathan Liew asks if the World Cup has seen better days; Miranda France explores the life and meaning of Frida Kahlo, and Simon Jenkins says Trump’s charge through the China shop of world affairs is not all bad news.
