2021-05-19

The intervention is part of the ongoing body of work that challenges dominant western conceptions of heritage. Accompanying the installation is a book nomination dossier, which attempts to deactivate the claims of objectivity and universalism contained in the conventions followed by UNESCO in determining World Heritage status. The book presents different narratives that do not fit within such statist discourse, reorienting heritage towards non-hegemonic forms of life and collective memory.

The installation has been supported by IASPIS, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Arts, in collaboration with Van Abbemuseum and La Biennale di Venezia. The publication of the book has been made possible with support of the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm; IASPIS, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists, Van Abbemuseum and Art Jameel in Dubai.
