Translated By

Charles Arsène-Henry and Shumon Basar (Eds.)

Translated By accompanies the exhibition at the AA, which gathers eleven literary writers and eleven literary-places and subjects these to an act of immaterial translation: via the voice. The stories run through Ramallah, recollect turn of the century Sofia, remember the space-ship looking-Sheraton Hotel in Doha, wander through the ‘Metaverse’ and end at the end of the world in West Vancouver. Each of the authors invent or interpret place. Mundane, marginal, infamous, impossible. Together, the texts create a strange and beautiful territory that traverses distance and time. Includes essays by Charles Arsène-Henry and Shumon Basar.
