On Translations

Research strand

Public Programmes and Research (PP&R) is structured across long term themed research strands. The exhibition From Ear to Ear to Eye (about listening and translation) serves as the backdrop for the launch of our new research strand On Translations. This strand explores relationships between the politics of translation and contemporary visual cultures. It questions the ambiguities embedded in translation, ranging from the erasure of languages and epistemologies by colonialism, to contemporary transnational and globalised connections.
