Leading artist Yinka Shonibare MBE is joined by Dr Meera Sabaratnam, International Relations lecturer at SOAS; and Al Jazeera journalist and author of Another’s Man War, Barnaby Phillips. Together they discuss Shonibare’s new commission, End of Empire, and explore how the new global alliances forged in the First World War changed British society forever and continue to affect us today. Topics covered include Shonibare’s upbringing in Nigeria and how this has influenced his practice; the vast global dimension of WW1 and the experiences of the millions of soldiers drawn from all corners of the Empire; and how it was the aftermath of WW1 that gave birth to the study of International Relations.
