Date: Friday 9 November 2018

Venue: AA Lecture Hall
Running time: 0 mins

…the Wilsons’ media archaeology of warfare, Futurist zeal is displaced by a melancholic retrospection, with any belief in a logic of progress abandoned.

 - Erica Balsom

We are particularly interested in what happens when the geography of a location takes on a porous identity, or becomes a place outside its own border and in particular this idea of "a suspended island. What happens when a place has lost control, when the site is no longer active and when all the power and command has left. 

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
