Playing on eclectic parallels and contrasts between the literary sense of the word ‘plot’ and Sharjah Biennial 10’s overarching themes, Manual for Treason is a guest-edited series of seven books commissioned by Sharjah Art Foundation. In this series, bilingual writers, translators, legal scholars, curators, art historians, critics, filmmakers, artists and theorists were invited to guest edit their version of the manual, as an eloquent suggestion of conspiracy, in one or more of the languages they possess in addition to English.
Edited by Omar Berrada, Érik Bullot, Başak Ertür, Angela Harutyunyan, Aras Özgun, Maha Maamoun, Haytham El-Wardany, Immanual Pourpre, Ashkan Sepahvand and Murtaza Vali
