This publication accompanies the ‘Making New Time’ platform that is part of Sharjah Biennial 14: ‘Leaving The Echo Chamber.’ The edition is not a classic catalogue that serves as a documentation of the exhibition but is structured as a critical reader on the ideas and expressions of the platform’s theme. It is a collection of commissioned provocations, long-form essays and poems from writers, filmmakers, poets and curators who are interested in thinking about new perspectives of time and challenging linear narratives of history.
