Ep.172 kennardphillipps - Ministry of Arts Podcast

In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to kennardphillipps (@kennardphillipps)

kennardphillipps is a collaboration between Peter Kennard and Cat Phillipps working since 2002 to produce art in response to the invasion of Iraq. It has evolved to confront power and war across the globe.

The work is made for the street, the gallery, the web, newspapers & magazines, and to lead workshops that develop peoples’ skills and help them express their thoughts on what’s happening in the world through visual means. The work is made as a critical tool that connects to international movements for social and political change.

kennardphillipps don’t see the work as separate to social and political movements that are confronting established political and economic systems, they see it as part of those movements, the visual arm of protest.

They want it to be used by people as a part of their own activism, not just as pictures on the wall to contemplate.

To facilitate this, as well as selling their limited edition prints on the site enabling them to fund the making of the work, there is a free download page of images with a voluntary contribution to the International Solidarity Movement.
