Published to coincide with Archive of Modern Conflict’s contribution to the exhibition Conflict, Time, Photography at Tate Modern, London, AMC2 journal Issue 11: A Guide for the Protection of the Public in Peacetime presents the landscapes of war as viewed by those co-opted, blighted, disrupted, demented, excited, uplifted, corrupted, dumbfounded and unbalanced by its process. It explores the psyche of conflict – from the primal tribalism of paint and feathers through the ideal of the chivalrous warrior to the scientific clinicality of triggers and switches. Photographers include household names as well as many of the unremembered people whose captured moments carry us to the zone of discord.

About the Publisher
The Archive of Modern Conflict is an organisation dedicated to the collection and preservation of vernacular photographs, objects, artefacts, curiosities, and ephemera. Founded in 1991, the archive began as a collection of photographs relating to war and conflict but has since expanded its remit to become the vast and thematically diverse repository it is today. They have produced and published over thirty books, often collaborating with photographers and artists such as Stephen Gill, Cristina de Middel, Thomas Mailaender, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, and Don McCullin.
