The Benefits of Empire? 98 Euro-Colonial Images of Africa

7th October 2021 - 7th April 2022

The role of European empires and colonialism in Africa has again become a focal point of discussion, following recent events. It has been implied that this was in some way beneficial, which it was not. This exhibition presents 98 photographs, mostly taken as snapshots by European photographers, which document views of European lives in Africa, and how they perceived Africa, Africans, and African wildlife, as well as European colonial perceptions of their contributions to the continent, and the mechanisms used to dominate the peoples, environments, and wildlife of Africa.

Exhibition open to the public weekdays: 9am - 5pm.

For further information please email Professor Timothy Insoll.
