From Fear to Sanity

“From Fear to Sanity: CND and the art of protest 1958-1963” is an exhibition on show at the Horse Hospital, an arts venue in London. The exhibition looks at the powerful visual language of the early years of mass anti-nuclear campaigning in Britain, including Gerald Holtom’s iconic nuclear disarmament symbol, the way it was adapted by campaigners, and photographs and film about protest. The exhibition is on until 30 August 2008. Special Collections and Commonweal Library have helped source images for this display: Commonweal holds Holtom’s original sketches, and the Commonweal Archives in Special Collections include many important archives from this period, notably Peace News and the Direct Action Committee against Nuclear War.
