Spectacles of Progress: The Politics and Aesthetics of Venezuelan Modernity
The Philosophy and Art History Research Seminar meets weekly in term on Thursday afternoons to discuss a paper by a visiting philosopher, art historian, or a member of our academic staff.
This week's speaker is Essex art historian Dr Lisa Blackmore.
Lisa researches the aesthetics and politics of modernity in Latin American and Caribbean art, architecture, and visual culture, exploring historical contexts and epistemic pacts that entangle vision with power and knowledge. In this week's seminar, Lisa will discuss the aesthetics and politics of Venezuelan modernity.
The seminar will be followed by informal drinks at Top Bar and a meal.
