Shifting Ground: The Underground Is Not the Past

Off-site project of Sharjah Biennial 13: Launch of ten artist publications and a symposium, 10 - 14 August 2017, Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center, Ramallah and Khashabi Theatre, Haifa.
Jul 2017


Titled Shifting Ground, the event in Ramallah is the third of four Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj (SB13) off-site projects centred around the keywords ‘water’, ‘crops’, ‘earth’ and ‘culinary’. SB13 curator Christine Tohme has invited Lara Khaldi to be the interlocutor of this project.

Khaldi has conceived and organised a programme that includes newly commissioned publications, a symposium and performances. The artist publications highlight research on issues related to the keyword ‘earth’ and experiment with the book as an art form. The symposium provides an opportunity for presenters to enter into discussion with the audience and offers different styles of presentations, such as artist performances and academic papers.
