Overview

Playing on eclectic parallels and contrasts between the literary sense of the word ‘plot’ and Sharjah Biennial 10’s overarching themes, Manual for Treason is a guest-edited series of seven books commissioned by Sharjah Art Foundation. In this series, bilingual writers, translators, legal scholars, curators, art historians, critics, filmmakers, artists and theorists were invited to guest edit their version of the manual, as an eloquent suggestion of conspiracy, in one or more of the languages they possess in addition to English.

The books in the series include: Manual for Treason edited by Murtaza Vali published in English, Urdu and Bengali; The Book of St. Ejneb edited by Angela Harutyunyan and Aras Özgun published in English, Turkish, Arabic and Armenian; The Middle Ear edited by Maha Maamoun and Haytham El-Wardany published in English and Arabic; Manual for Conspiracy edited by Başak Ertür published in English and Turkish; Expanded Translation; Or, A Treason Treatise edited by Omar Berrada and Érik Bullot published in English and French; Then We Went in Search of Somewhere edited by Ashkan Sepahvand published in English and Farsi; and Mongols From Everywhere by Immanual Pourpre published in English and French.
