The Image of Whiteness

Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


With the recent revivification of fascism in Europe, America and Australia in mind, this lecture offers a brief history of white-skinned people, discussion of the much later invention of the “white race”, white denials of complicity, relative white silence, and the white gaze both as a form of image and as a deeply violent way of seeing the world. Visual examples will be drawn from photographic art and popular culture.
