FINAL VOCABULARY: ON SEARCHING FOR NEW LANGUAGE. Ed. by Mai Abu ElDahab. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 112 pp. 20 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956791765 In English.
Publisher's description: The latest edition from Informal Meeting, a gathering of curators and programmers from the Arab world organized by the Young Arab Theatre Fund, Final Vocabulary captures the spirit of an intimate forum of artists and writers assembled by Cairo curator Mai Abu ElDahab to consider the role of language in circumstances of dramatic change. Taking its cue from the Egyptian Revolution of 2011, the conversation began with questions intended to draw out ideas on creating shared language. Participants' responses included lectures, performances and impassioned discussions on how to make and experience art within what feel like constantly shrinking space for thinking and sharing. Berlin-based writer/curator Federica Bueti, Egyptian artist Malak Helmy, Irish writer/curator Francis McKee, Egyptian writer Haytham El Wardany and New York writer Brian Kuan Wood expand their discussions in five lively essays for this bilingual publication.
