This publication accompanies the ‘Journey Beyond the Arrow’ platform that is part of Sharjah Biennial 14: ‘Leaving The Echo Chamber.’ The edition brings together commissions from artists, academics, thinkers and poets who explore the nature and occurrence of human mobility from the Global South with an emphasis on trans-regionalism around the Indian Ocean, decolonisation and interrogations of political authority. Essays included in the book propose differing points from which to analyse cause and effect in the writing and dissemination of myth and history.
