WhenSaturday, September 30, 2023, 13:00 - 14:00
Join Dr John Gibney and Dr Roisin Kennedy in discussion with Aoife Bhreathach.
The Cosgrave administration officially asked renowned stained glass artist Harry Clarke to design a window as Ireland's present to the International Labour Office building in Geneva in 1927. The window was finished before Clarke died in January 1931, but it was never displayed.
Join Dr John Gibney and Dr Roisin Kennedy in discussion with Aoife Bhreathach to learn about the commissioning and design of the window, and how the censorship of literature impacted on the visual content and the attitudes of the people who commissioned the windows creation.
