Sometimes when researching for stories, you find gems. While doing background reading for my story about Rosa Luxemburg, I'd read that during the Sparticist Uprising, the workers took over the publishing district of Berlin. Then I found this photograph. They are using newspapers and paper as barricades.
Photos are the inspiration for a new vignette I'm writing, which is commissioned as a response to an exhibition at the Whitworth. One of Turner's paintings of Conway Castle and one of Donovan Wylie's photographs of the British Watchtowers that were erected in South Armagh. I shall upload them very soon...
