Hidden Civil War: Commissions & Exhibitions

smallGlasto photo 1

Hidden Civil War was a month long programme of activity in Newcastle upon Tyne, commissioned by The NewBridge Project. Throughout October 2016 we invited activists and artists to contribute to a series of events that exposed, collated and presented evidence of a Hidden Civil War in Britain today.

The programme included artworks, performances, public-realm interventions, talks and film screenings from internationally renowned artists and activists. These ideas took a broad approach, from quiet and considered talks and films, through to loud and overt calls for dissent. From playful interventions that subvert the political rhetoric, through to thought-provoking debates that highlight issues of austerity and give voice to marginalized groups. Whilst these works were embedded within the city of Newcastle, they were contextualised by national and international ideas of Hidden Civil War.
