People, places, and things, objects, can be seen as rebellious within the confines of rigid institutional structures and narrow definitions of exclusion, symptoms of an unfree world. This talk is anchored around objects collected for an experimental project at the British Museum that expose the limits of museums, authoritarian definitions of heritage, and the ambiguous state of today’s coloniality. These themes permeate other projects by Mohamed Elshahed over the past decade, from installations to acts of rebellious writing, forming a practice that is subtly nonconformist, nomadic and constantly questioning the liminal space between official narratives and personal memories. In this talk Mohamed Elshahed will showcase several accidentally rebellious projects and objects.
