Amalia Ulman and Monira Al Qadiri are taking part in a respective screening and Skype talk at Gothenburg’s Landsarkivet in Sweden on November 17.
As part of the Communicating the Archive: Inscription lecture series, curated by Gluey-c, the two sessions will show Al Qadiri’s ‘Behind the Sun’ (2013) and Ulman’s ‘The Annals of Private History’ (2015), that first screened at Frieze London 2015 through Skype.
The fictionalised history of the diary presented by the latter LA-based artist follows a narrative of a girl’s private space to speak within an oppressive and repressive gendered history, while the Senegal-born Al Qadiri presents the hellish representation of Kuwait’s oil fields following the first Gulf War.
