The picture above, from Patrick Keiller’s new film Robinson in Ruins, shows opium poppies growing in England. Released on 19 November, the film is one of several outcomes of a three-year, AHRC-funded research collaboration between Keiller, Doreen Massey, Patrick Wright and Matthew Flintham.

Following a screening of the film, the co-researchers will present and discuss their combined project. Through its study of a landscape, the project challenges commonly-held assumptions about the current economic and ecological crises: about market forces, commodification, and the terms of belonging in an age supposedly characterised by mobility and displacement.
