Overview

Four Interlocutors have been invited by Tohme to engage in an extended conversation with Sharjah, from specific sites within the broader region. Artist Kader Attia in Dakar, Senegal; curator Lara Khaldi in Ramallah, Palestine; Zeynep Oz in Istanbul, Turkey; and the Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts, Ashkal Alwan in Beirut, Lebanon.

These four Interlocutors will be working closely with researchers in the four cities, paired with counterparts in Sharjah. Together they will populate Chip-ship, a centralised digital storage space, housing various media, images, and texts, addressing the four keywords water, earth, crops and culinary. Each keyword also will correspond to a locality, which will host one of four consecutive programmes envisioned by the Interlocutors in Dakar around the theme of water; Istanbul around the theme of crops; Ramallah around the theme of earth; and Beirut around the theme of culinary. A yearlong online publishing platform will host articles, media and essays responding to the four keywords; four consecutive compendiums will be released coinciding with the start of each of the four off-site projects.
