Between the late 1400s and the 1880s, the Atlantic Slave Trade cost the freedom and lives of over eleven million Africans. Today its impact and legacy is a live discussion across the world.

In Remembering Slavery in Contemporary Artworks, Professor Claire Griffiths looks at how contemporary artists from Africa engage with this discussion through their artistic practice, and will conclude with an opportunity for audience members to discuss the works and the issues raised in the talk.

 

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.
