Ibraaz December Newsletter

006 / 19 December 2013

This month, Ibraaz features further responses to our Platform 006 question, which addressed the role of the archive in developing and sustaining a critical and culturally located art history.


We are also pleased to publish a report of the symposium Future Imperfect, organized by Ibraaz in collaboration with Tate Modern and the Kamel Lazaar Foundation (www.kamellazaarfoundation.org), alongside an edited video featuring Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil JoreigeTony ChakarShuddhabrata Sengupta, Zineb Sedira, Tarek El Ariss, Todd Reisz, Abdelkader Damani, Omar Berrada, Lina Lazaar, Bassam El Baroni, and Douglas Coupland. We also publish an interview with curatorial collective, What, How & for Whom/WHW, on Meeting Points 7.
