Ibraaz June Reader 010/02
We are pleased to celebrate our 5th Anniversary with the release of newly commissioned content for Platform 010, including essays by Patricia Triki and Christine Bruckbauer, projects by Maya Chami and Ahmed Badry, interviews with Nora Razian, Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, Mario Rizzi, Louis Henderson, and Kim Beamish, a series of channel videos from the Warehouse Project Talks, staged by Vikrem Divecha, alongside reviews from shows in Limerick, London, and Tehran. Ibraaz's Editor-in-Chief Anthony Downey has also contributed an essay concerning developments in our research and publishing remit since 2011 and, perhaps more importantly, the all too imminent challenges faced by cultural producers across the region today.
In July, Ibraaz will continue publishing commissioned content surround the theme of Platform 010, Where to Now?
