Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in England
Steve McQueen: Queen and Country



Steve McQueen: Queen and Country
ENGLAND
LONDON  •  Barbican Centre  •  Ongoing
 
 
Queen and Country commemorates the British Service personnel who have been killed during the conflict in Iraq. It takes the form of a cabinet containing a series of facsimile postage sheets featuring photographic portraits of the individual men and women who have died in the conflict so far. Turner prize winner Steve McQueen created the piece in response to his visit to Iraq in 2003 and worked in collaboration with 137 families whose loved ones have lost their lives in the conflict. The artist hopes that an official set of stamps will eventually be issued by Royal Mail.
