Using rarely seen archival footage, interviews with leading experts, and arresting visual graphics, this quirky and energetic 1-hour documentary reveals the untold story of the art of deception in war.

Artists and the military might seem strange bedfellows, but painters, sculptors, photographers and set designers have played a critical but little-known role in modern warfare. Despite resistance and often ridicule, artists were recruited in both the first and second world wars to devise ways to protect troops and deceive the enemy by using their artistic skills and intimate knowledge of perspective, illusion, shadow, and movement.

This film is presented in dialogue with BSC’s current exhibition «Augmented Reality,» which features parallel themes and practices. Come early and tour the exhibitions and see what connections you can make.

Reserve your spot, mark your calendar, and join us for some quality movie time with complimentary Ricos Products Company, Inc. and drinks!
