In 1917 the Great War escalated in Flanders into a Total War. Science, technology, industry, economy and society were the cogwheels of a war machine going at full speed.
The project '1917. Total War in Flanders' connects various locations in a route of exhibitions and information points.
The thematic exhibition in the In Flanders Fields Museum gives the visitor a general introduction to the Mine Battle of Messines and the Third Battle of Ieper. There is an important place in the exhibition for the work of the Australian war photographers Frank Hurley & Hubert Wilkins and the re-worked contemporary photos of Ian Alderman.
