Reinterpreting 1913 Episode 1

Reinterpreting 1913 is a radio series which looks at the Artistic influence that the lockout had on a number of different artistic disciplines.

In this episode we look at how the media of the time used photographs and cartoons to portray the events of the lockout in a way that positively reflected their side of the story.

We hear from members of the RADE project who feature in the exhibition “100 years ago”. They talk us through their artistic responses to the lockout in the form of paintings and scultpures and explain their interpretations.

Musician Enda Reilly performs his version of Yeats “September 1913” and talks us through the process of arranging the poem for song.
