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.
Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art - University College London Saturday 18 March, 2017 (Pearson Building, G22 LT), 9:30am – 5:15pm, followed by drinks reception.
Deadline for booking: March 16th 2017
