At I.B.Tauris we are delighted to announce our partnership with London-based online publishing forum Ibraaz.
I.B.Tauris’ partnership with Ibraaz will see the publication of an edited series of volumes on visual culture in North Africa and the Middle East.
Volume I will be edited by Ibraaz’s Editor Anthony Downey and, following on from Ibraaz’s platform 004 question, will look at new media practices across the Middle East and North Africa, their historical development, and their recent engagement with the rhetoric and aesthetics of revolution and social unrest. Essays by Franco Berardi Bifo, Nat Muller, Annabelle Sreberny, Sheyma Buali, Ghalia Elsrakbi and Lauren Alexander, Omar Kholeif, Zeigam Azizov, Tarek Khoury, A.S. Bruckstein Çoruh, Cleo Jay, Jens Maier-Rothe, Azin Feizabadi and Dina Kafafi will appear in the first volume, alongside other specially commissioned essays.
Volume II will examine the impact of globalisation on North Africa and the Middle East, and how artistic practices interrogatively explore these developments. It is intended that I. B.Tauris and Ibraaz will publish two volumes a year, beginning with the publication of volume 1 in September 2013.
I.B.Tauris and Ibraaz will announce their partnership on the 21st of November at 6.30 pm at the Delfina Foundation, 29/31 Catherine Place, Victoria, London SW1E 6DY.
Ibraaz is an online publishing forum initiated by the Kamel Lazaar Foundation. It publishes essays, interviews and artists’ projects on visual culture within and beyond North Africa and the Middle East. So if you have not already got them on your radar, we urge you to sign up to their newsletters. ■
