Raafat Majzoub: prototyping cultural practices

September 18, 2019 8:00 pm

Prototyping cultural practices: artistic explorations in publishing new social systems.

In this talk, Raafat Majzoub uses three of his projects The Wishing Fountain (2015),Streetschool (2019) and The Khan Collection (ongoing) to discuss his explorations in using the infrastructures of contemporary art and cultural practice to publish alternative collective rituals and ways to make them sustainable social systems. The presentation will be based on Majzoub’s conceptual frameworks of active and dormant fictions and will trace the publication of his literary manuscript The Perfumed Garden (ongoing) as an NGO The Khan: the Arab association for prototyping cultural practices.
