Magasin 3 at SSE seminar: World trade in the post-colonial era

Date: January 23, 2014
Location: Stockholm School of Economics
Language: English

Since Spring 2013, Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall exhibits central video-based artworks at Stockholm School of Economics. The initiative revolves around the experimental spirit that these works represent, and a number of the art works shown have opened up questions of representation, colonialism, and international trade. This open seminar dwells into these questions and asks the overarching question of what post-colonialism can teach us about human experience and economic activity in today’s globalised society.
