Past Imperfect is a visual culture seminar in which we hope to share recent concerns with the past and its place in the present, a present increasingly overinvested in the value of contemporary. Each academic year we explore a particular theme, such as 'Obsolescence', 'Disorientation' or 'Confinement'
