Journey Beyond the Arrow
Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber
Accompanying Sharjah Biennial 14, this volume examines the tools and technologies that have enabled human movement.
This book accompanies Journey Beyond the Arrow, one of the three sections of Sharjah Biennial 14. It brings together commissions from artists, academics, thinkers, and poets who explore the nature and occurrence of human mobility from the Global South–with an emphasis on trans-regionalism around the Indian Ocean, decolonization, and interrogations of political authority. Essays included in the book propose differing points from which to analyze cause and effect in the writing and dissemination of myth and history.
