Rana Hamadeh in Conversation

Theatre of Justice

01 Dec 2015

A conversation addressing the spectacle of justice focusing on the case of Raya and Sakina: two infamous sister serial killers and the first women to be executed by a legal court in the modern history of Egypt, and subject of Hamadeh’s installation in our galleries.
 
Legal theorist Abdelhay Moudden, art critic Declan Long and the artist Rana Hamadeh will be discussing the case.
 
 
Rana Hamadeh develops long-term discursive projects that evolve through sequences of performances and cartographic works, sound and text-based constellations, as well as writings. Thinking through the relations of justice and theatre, her works lead journeys amidst state-sponsored corporate and military sites of violence, colonial legacies, outer-space and land-sea relations plotted through science fiction projections, geo-political territory formation, and cross-border travel, among others. Her work has been shown internationally at a.o. The New Museum, NY; Western Front, Vancouver; Gallery TPW, Toronto; e-flux, NY; 8th Liverpool Biennial; Wattis Institute, San Francisco; KIOSK, Ghent; Witte de With, Rotterdam; 6th Moscow Biennale; The Lisson Gallery, London; Beirut, Cairo and Beirut Art Centre.
 
Declan Long is a lecturer at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin, Ireland, where he is Programme Director (with Francis Halsall) of the MA Art in the Contemporary World. He is a contributor to Artforum, Frieze and other contemporary art publications. In 2013 he served as a member of the Turner Prize judging panel.
