This is the last of three catalogues for the Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber, by the three curators: Zoe Butt, Omar Kholeif and Claire Tancons.
This publication, edited by Claire Tancons and Diego del Valle Rios/TERREMOTO, accompanies the Look for Me All Around You platform, part of Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving The Echo Chamber. This book charts a non-chronological time-space (dis-) continuum between the Americas and the Emirates, building unexpected trans-oceanic and multi-diasporic bridges for a global history. This volume provides interpretative, discursive, poetic, political, and theoretical tools to compare and contrast modes of migration, production, extraction, and exploitation through a series of 30 newly commissioned context-specific works and critical texts. Look for Me All Around You also operates as an artists’ book generative of readings on performance.
