Planned Violence Exhibition


Planned Violence Image

Launch of Planned Violence: Post/colonial Cities' poster exhibition (*Please note change of time and place*)

The Planned Violence poster exhibition will take place in the TORCH corridor and seminar room. The exhibition will show some of the provocative and memorable images that capture the work of the Leverhulme funded 'Planned Violence' project. Elleke Boehmer and Dominic Davies will speak to the images, and reflect on the project's two-year intellectual trajectory, recounting in particular some of the conceptual work of responding to infrastructural violence through cultural forms. Wine and nibbles will be served.

A selection of the provocative urban images from the Leverhulme funded project Planned Violence: Post/colonial Infrastructures and Literature will be on display on the 3rd floor of the Radcliffe Humanities building. The photographs of cities ranging from Mumbai to Milton Keynes will confront how cultural forms can interrogate restrictions on urban environments in the 21st-century city. Join us for the launch of the Planned Violence photo exhibition on 28 April at 17:15 in the Seminar Room. Elleke Boehmer and Dominic Davies, PI and Facilitator on the project, will talk through some of the searching questions that Planned Violence raised, and how photographs might respond to these.
