Description/Abstract of your Event: 

This panel will question the conventional processes of capturing, archiving, and exhibiting revolutions through art and design. First, Sameer Farooq, co-founder of the Museum of Found Objects, will share his experience building depositories of memory amidst the height of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. Working with the conventions of film, photography, and writing as a method to document, Farooq constructs unexpected archives that reveal assumed narratives and celebrates its problematic nature. Second, artist collective, Cadice Guadalupe will present a body of work that explores the intersections of forgotten/hidden histories, peripheral sites, and feminine myths. Lastly, artist Jordan Taylor explains his research in restorative justice of prison systems through a proposed design construction analogous to art museums.
