Visual Politics of Contemporary Far Right Parties. Explorations of Entanglements Between Germany's AfD and India's BJP

This project explores global entanglements of far right visual politics focusing on Germany’s AfD and India’s BJP. It scrutinizes matters of (in)visibility, gendered nationalisms, and nation branding as they relate to anti-Muslim narratives amongst other things. Taking a genealogical approach on the employed visual topoi this project uses the far right visual politics as a lens to critically examine the body of knowledge drawn on, as it relates to i.e. narratives of secularism and liberalism. It also traces these narratives to broader society discourses and thus proposes a reading of the far right visual politics that allows to question a body of knowledge that is often considered ‘neutral’ or ‘universal’.
