Natalia Sobrevilla Perea in Chilean violence discussion

Dr Natalia Sobrevilla Perea, Reader in Hispanic Studies in the Department of Modern Languages, will be participating in a round table discussion on ‘The Aesthetics of Witnessing: A Conversation about Violence and the Challenges of its Representation’ at Birkbeck, University of London, at 18.00 on 9 June 2016.

The discussion is tied with the launch of an exhibition, ‘Tejas Verdes: I Was Not There’, that focuses on ex-detention and extermination sites in Chile and explores the possibilities of representing violence without reproducing it.

The round table is a conversation between Professor Vikki Bell (Goldsmiths College), Dr Jelke Boesten (King’s College London), Dr Margarita Palacios (Birkbeck College) and the visual artist Dr Livia Marin.
