Invisibility, like visibility, is a set of practices and ideas that order the world and its politics. While the workings of visual politics are increasingly documented and understood, the same cannot be said about explorations of the relationships between invisibility and politics. Part of the answer lies in being more attentive to how visibility and invisibility are mutually constitutive. The answer also lies, however, in understanding that, like visibilities, invisibilities operate in multiple modes that depend on different, and often competing, understandings of how knowledge and common sense are constituted. To fully grasp the breadth of what visual politics offers is to understand the different ways in which the visible and the invisible are produced, ordered and normalised.
