Cold War Games - 7 Mar - 4 Jun
In 1956, an Olympic year, the world was beset with Cold War anxieties. Tensions between East and West had been heightened less than a month before the Games when the USSR invaded Hungary to crush an uprising. Then Israeli, French and British armies invaded and occupied Egypt’s Sinai and Suez Canal Zone.

Would our moment in the sun be blown away by revolutions and wars raging over 15,000 kilometres away?
