Oxford Seminar on Visual Culture in Modern and Contemporary China

This year the University of Oxford China Centre will be hosting a seminar series that focuses on visual culture in modern and contemporary China. Convened by Prof. Margaret Hillenbrand, the seminars will bring together a diverse range of scholars to discuss topics including visual culture in Maoist China, the films of Jia Zhangke, Photography and Privacy in China and Contemporary Chinese Performance (to name but a few). The full list of speakers and topics is listed below and the seminars are open to the public. I will be presenting some new research next May in a talk entitled ‘Modelling Marx: Technologies of Engagement and Automation in Contemporary Art’.
