Presented by Dr Allison Stielau, UCL.


Image Economies:

As money fades into apparent immateriality, the visual aspect of economics becomes more important if we are to avoid overlooking the obscure forces that rule our lives. These lectures re-examine the connections between images and capital, investigating how the former represent, mould and are moulded by economic forces, and how they function like currency themselves, as promissory notes, media of exchange and stores of value.


This lecture is the first in a three part series. Organised by Tom Wilkinson, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow.
