About The Book

Lola Frost’s Leverhulme Kings College London artist’s residency  in the Department of War Studies is committed to exploring the idea and practice of productive risk and commences with the exhibition titled Taking Risks.

This exhibition of paintings will be on show in Somerset House East Wing (basement level -2, Learning Centre rooms), Strand, from the 7th to the 25th October 2014.

A collaborative project between Lola Frost and academics in the Department of War Studies is to be inaugurated in this exhibition with a conversation between the artist and Dr Claudia Aradau on the topic of Aesthetic Risk and Security Risk on the 22nd October at 5.30pm.
