Empires put pressure on our capacities to perceive them, and empire is a theoretical object that demands perspectival multiplicity. This is the first event in a series that brings into conversation artists and scholars whose work articulates, complicates and contests empire across disparate geographical and historical contexts. With a particular focus on visual and material cultures, this discussion series adopts a comparative approach, investigating what is made visible when different geographies and histories of empire are brought into dialogue.
Seminar organized by Department of Art and Archaeology graduate students Ariel Kline and Luke Naessens.
