A virtual tour of an exhibition at the Tower Museum, exploring the impact and legacy on the 1920-1925 period, has been made available online.
The Dividing Ireland exhibition, produced by the Nerve Centre in partnership with the Tower Museum, was originally on display at the museum from July 2020 to February 2021.
The exhibition explores the period from 1912 to 1925 including the origins, impact and legacy of the partition of Ireland. Through objects, archive materials, film and audio recordings, the installation examines the tumultuous events of this time period and monumental changes to the political and social structures of the island of Ireland.
The Dividing Ireland Exhibition considers high level politics alongside the social and other aspects of the past in an effort to bring us closer to a considered understanding of partition in history and its impacts on the present.
The exhibition was delivered as part of the Understanding the Decade of Commemorations project, supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
