How an archaeological excavation led by German diplomat Baron Max von Oppenheim in Tell Halaf, northeast Syria, at the turn of the twentieth century can reshape present geopolitical debates? Have fragmented family heirlooms the agency to decolonize dominant archaeological narratives? This roundtable brings together artists, curators and scholars to explore current discussions of cultural (re)appropriation, heritage and freedom of movement in this critical historical moment.
The discussion will open with Rayyane Tabet's reading performance "Dear Victoria" (2016-ongoing)
The event is organized on the occasion of Rayyane Tabet’s solo exhibition Exquisite Corpse at Sharjah Art Foundation curated by Ryan Inouye.
