Guy Mannes-Abbott: Writer
To celebrate the launch of Dissonant Archives: Contemporary Visual Culture and Contested Narratives in the Middle East, edited by Anthony Downey (I.B. Tauris, 2015) in September 2015, Ibraaz held a panel discussion at Rivington Place. Here, a range of invited participants responded to the notion and concepts surrounding the archive and contemporary visual artistic production.
In this video, writer Guy Mannes-Abbott discusses the archive and its relationship to generating new forms of methodology and interpretation through the work of artist Emily Jacir. For further details on the book, please follow this link.
