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 >

Conversely, cultural history can sometimes cast artists as vessels floating on a tide of external events. Reality is more complex, especially in the twentieth century. Examining collaborating couples can force us to rethink the paradigms of working relationships in the arts.See more details >
