Ibraaz January Newsletter

006 / 28 January 2014


Following on from the launch of Platform 006, Ibraaz is pleased to publish an extensive essay by Rona Sela examining the role of the archive in zones of conflict. Our content this month also includes conversations with Joe Namy and Akram Zataari, and artist projects by Setareh Shahbazi and Lawrence Abu Hamdan. We also publish reviews from Hamburg and Amman and release video documentation from our recent conference held at Tate Modern, Future Imperfect, including presentations by, amongst others, Douglas Coupland, Shuddhabrata Sengupta, Tony Chakar, Bassam El Baroni, Tarek El Ariss, and Todd Reisz.


Ibraaz and the Kamel Lazaar Foundation are also pleased to announce that they are the online media partners (alongside global media partners, The International New York Times) for Art Dubai's 2014 Global Art Forum. Participants include John Akomfrah, Okwui Enwezor, Catherine David, Frauke Heard-Bey, Sulayman Al Bassam, Farah Al-Nakib, Marina Warner and many others. We will be releasing more information over the coming weeks.
