Next 29 November, we’re showing After Trujillo in London, for the first of what we hope will be a series of screenings at universities in the UK. We’re excited to be hosted by Professor Vikki Bell, who has done important and very sensitive work on transitional justice and art production in post-dictatorship Argentina and now Chile. Vikki is the author of four monographs, including Culture and Performance (Bloomsbury, 2007). Widely published in peer-reviewed journals, she has addressed questions of ethics, aesthetics, subjectivity and politics across the social sciences and theoretical humanities. Recently her work has explored cultural-aesthetic aspects of transitional justice in Argentina, where her research has been funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council and, in 2015-7, by the Economic & Social Research Council. The most recent publication from this project is The Art of Post-Dictatorship: Ethics & Aesthetics in transitional Argentina (Routledge, 2014). This work has recently extended to include Chile.
