Curator, Sharjah Biennial 13
Tamawuj – an Arabic word translated as ‘the rising and falling of waves’, ‘a flowing, swelling, surging or fluctuation’ and ‘a wavy, undulating appearance, outline or form’. Sharjah Biennial 13 is a proposition for how we could rethink this infrastructure called the biennial, and whether we can rearrange parts of it to come up with a slightly adjusted whole.
Collaborations and friendships are at the heart of what I do. These localities – (Sharjah, Dakar, Istanbul, Ramullah and Beirut) were not selected for some geopolitical qualities, but rather because of certain people working in these cities, with whom I share a common history and a common vision.
