Do we NEED to see what war does to people? Ought we HAVE TO see it? When does shock give way to lazy acceptance? How do photographers decide what we see and manipulate how we see it? Nobody has asked people permission to display their pain, suffering or mutilated corpses: does that matter?


Come and join in a debate about these and related issues hosted by Fabrica and University of Brighton's Centre For Applied Philosophy, Politics & Ethics.

6pm - 8pm
