What are the images that stay with you, the ones you can see if you close your eyes and just think, or remember, or dream? Which ones, if you could burn them on a disc, would you take to that mythical desert island?
Held at Barbican Library in March and April, Desert Island Images is a series of conversations with invited guests who have a story to tell and a passionate relationship to the world of images. Each event explores the handful of images they find most powerful, inspiring, comforting, haunting or generally indispensable. Encompassing photographs, paintings, drawings, graphics, illustrations, films, TV, maps, diagrams and more, Desert Island Images is an invitation to take the pulse of our image saturated world via a unique personal and critical perspective.
This series is hosted by Alistair Cartwright, historian, activist and researcher at the University of Liverpool.
