History of Art
Joint Book Launch
Wednesday April 24th at 6pm in Seminar Rooms 3/4.
You are invited to the joint book launch of TJ Demos' The Migrant Image: The Art and Politics of Documentary During Global Crisis (Duke, 2013), Return to the Postcolony: Specters of Colonialism in Contemporary Art (Sternberg, 2013), and Sarah James' Common Ground: German Photographic Cultures Across the Iron Curtain (Yale, 2013).
An informal conversation chaired by Anthony Gardner (University of Oxford)
exploring the themes addressed by both authors (including the relation between
documentary practices and political agency; the activist potential of images;
photographic cultures/practices during the Cold War and in the post-socialist,
neo-colonial, globalised present), will be followed by drinks.
No booking needed, but limited seating, so arrive punctually.
