Ibraaz April Newsletter

006 / 30 April 2014



Ibraaz is pleased to present the concluding interview for Platform 006, which examined the role of the archive in cultural production. In this interview, Lamia Joreige discusses her work with Anthony Downey and explores how it negotiates the legacy and apparent veracity of archives.

A selection of essays, interviews and artists projects from Platform 006 will be published in Archival Dissonance: Contemporary Art and Knowledge Production (IB Tauris/Ibraaz Publishing, forthcoming November, 2014).

This month, we also present video interviews with Slavs and Tatars, Adam Szymczyk, Farah Al-Nakib and John Akomfrah on the newly-launched Ibraaz Channel, as well as reviews and reports from London and Sharjah.
