Description of work

'Using a photograph of ED Morel's anti-war tract 'Truth and War' (1916) because no fiction, not even Tristram Shandy, could necessarily anticipate the emergence of the 'black art' of propaganda as practised by the modern state. The pink markers reflect my search for references to Winston Churchill - considered by Morel to be, or to have become, a dreadful mythmaker during the Great War, and therefore a 'personal force for evil' against which he was pleased to stand in the General Election of 1922.'
