Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll: Art in the Time of Colony

Publication Launch

15 October 2016

  • Event Cost:

Artist, art historian, and Professor of Global Art at Birmingham University, Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll launches the paperback edition of Art in the Time of Colony at the IMA. She will be in conversation with Dr Amelia Barikin, Lecturer in Art History at the University of Queensland.

Art in the Time of Colony examines the politics of material culture; reclaiming Aboriginal objects as art, rather than anthropology. It revisits the nineteenth century colonial period to view the influence of Aboriginal cultural practice on the classification of scientific, legal and artistic objects –– rethinking art criticism.

This paperback edition is available during the launch for the special price of $38.50 (50% off RRP).

Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll is an artist and art historian based in London. She is Professor of Global Art at the University of Birmingham and Daphne Mayo Visiting Professor in Visual Culture at University of Queensland. Currently working on an Immigration Detention Archive at Oxford and performance for the Swiss national theatre in Bern on Immigration Removal Centres, her installations and texts have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, Savvy Contemporary Gallery, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, Pitt Rivers Museum, and the Marrakech Biennale. She is an editor of the journal Third Text and a regular contributor to Art Monthly Australasia.
