A PUBLICATION



The project will culminate in a publication, which will not be conceived as an exhibition catalogue but as a thematic book or “reader” for the project. The book will comprise a collection of essays and critical texts relating to the different stages of Giving Contours to Shadows and will essentially cover the chapters:

1) Unthinking the Chimera
2) Sequestrating History
3) Pre-Writing histories
4) Performing and Embodying histories
5) Wandering through histories

and will also encompass wider angles of alternative historical narrations. Among the invited writers will be the participants of the round tables.
