The Hop Loft, The Swan in the Rushes
Join us at our 'pop up' AHITP to hear Kathryn Brown talk about 'Ghouls, Ghosts, and Goblins: Haunting Art History'
How can visual art depict beings that are essentially invisible? Does the making visisibe through art betray the very essence of 'ghostliness'? If artworks create a role for the viewer in visual fictions, does art's audience figure as a ghost-like presence in the world of a painting?See more details >
Conference - Decolonising History: Visualisations of Conflict in a ‘Post-War’ Europe, University College London
This interdisciplinary symposium seeks to engage with and challenge the notion of a ‘post-war Europe’ through the lens of artistic, photographic and filmic visualisations of decolonial struggles and their legacies. Writing in reference to France’s imperial and colonial past, in her book From a Nation Torn (2014) Hannah Feldman has argued that the notion of a ‘post-war’ Europe occludes many of the conflicts which evolved after the end of WW2. This symposium will consider these marginalised struggles through the lens of visual culture.See more details >
