Who is Lawrence Abu Hamdan, and why is his art so relevant for our times? Welcome to an in-depth discussion of the artists’ oeuvre, in which we will take the monograph Dirty Evidence, published in conjunction with the exhibition, as our point of departure. The panel will include three of the authors, Yasmine Seale, Natasha Ginwala and Theodor Ringborg, as well as editor Fabian Schöneich. Among other topics, they will be discussing the political aspects of some of Abu Hamdan’s most significant works. In English.
The monograph Dirty Evidence is a richly illustrated publication that delivers a comprehensive overview of the artist’s practice over the last 10+ years. The book presents an in-depth visual analysis of Abu Hamdan’s work accompanied by commissioned essays which focus on single pieces as well as on the artist’s oeuvre. Contributors include Natasha Ginwala, Ruba Katrib, Andrea Lissoni, Ramona Naddaff, Theodor Ringborg, Yasmine Seale and Eyal Weizman. The book is edited and introduced by Fabian Schöneich.
