Histories of Disintegration

November 21st, 2020

Histories can often be told through the changes in a landscape; about what has changed and come to form, but most of all, what is excluded altogether.

Presented during The Shape of a Practice, these two case studies interrogate the histories that can be told through landscape change. Artists Shahana Rajani and Zahra Malkani document the ongoing climate and military struggles occurring around Bahria Town in Pakistan, and artist and activist Imani Jaqueline Brown uses experimental forms of representation to reflect on last year’s Mississippi. An Anthropocene River project. The screenings are followed with discussion moderated by writer Adania Shibli.
