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.
