Does it Matter?

  • 28 July 2014 — 28 July 2015 *on now

When two million newly disabled British ex-servicemen returned from the First World War, society’s attitudes to disability had to change.

In a series of short films produced by Artsadmin and Xenoki, five contemporary disabled artists (Katherine Araniello, Jez Colborne in collaboration with Mind the Gap, Claire Cunningham, Tony Heaton and Simon Mckeown) present warm, witty and poignant perspectives on war and disability. From a cast of animated disabled soldiers to a chaotic WW1 hospital and the heroic figures depicted on war memorials, these films offer unorthodox, irreverent and unexpected takes on the legacies of war and disability in Britain today.

Suitable for

  • Any age
