Project Details

Description

This research collaboration brings together academics and postgraduate students from Kyoto and Bristol whose work is at the forefront of developing new theoretical understandings of the geographies, histories, and politics of popular visual culture(s). The collaboration will take as its orienting theme the idea of ‘deterritorialisation’ (defined as the detachment of an object from its original context of signification), and therefore the aim will be to stage encounters between visual research in the Japanese and British contexts, opening existing theoretical insights and approaches at both institutions to a different set of philosophical, artistic, and socio-political perspectives and agendas.
