Photomontage Today: Peter Kennard 1983
35 mins United Kingdom Director. Chris Rodrigues, Rod Stoneman
This documentary produced by Arts Council England looks at photomontage as a political tool, specifically in the work of Peter Kennard and his attempts to distort meaning and construct a ‘visual language of opposition’.
Kennard explains his approach of juxtaposing contradictory images to provoke new meanings, and his work is discussed in relation other political photomontage-makers such as the German John Heartfield and even filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein.
