Australia has a history of detaining families behind wire and under armed guard. During the Second World War sixty Jewish families from Singapore were interned ‘behind barbed wire’ alongside the Dunera Boys at Tatura in country Victoria. What was life like for them?

One of the group, Austrian sculptor Karl Duldig continued to create art while interned with his wife and young daughter. Working with a variety of materials including scrap paper for drawings, ‘potato’ sculptures, eucalyptus wood, plaster and terracotta, Karl responded to and transcended his difficult surroundings.

The Duldig family's struggle for recognition as genuine refugees and how Karl Duldig’s art was shaped by the experience is the subject of this award winning exhibition, which focuses on drawings and sculpture completed in Tatura and while in the Army, as well as later work.
