global-e provides a forum for timely analysis of global events, processes, and concerns. Published on a semi-weekly basis, each issue showcases a feature essay by a leading scholar or practitioner offering provocative reflections on public issues, historical trends, and theoretical debates.
This short essay combines theory and practice to address the image as global political theory. Precisely, the study explores to what extent visual images in their own right are able to produce global politics, while contributing to the emergence of a ‘global visual culture’ under present conditions of neoliberal globalization.
Tommaso Durante has a website about a visual archive project of the global imaginary.
Founded in 2007, the Visual Archive Project of the Global Imaginary is a an on-going, indipendent and self-managed digital database that explores the interplay between visual culture and globalization. This research project aims to build a historical and visual account of the multidimensional process of change and transformations we are witnessing in the early twenty-first century.
