Circular Facts


Edited by Mai Abu ElDahab, Binna Choi, Emily Pethick



Circular Facts discusses the role of small organisations in the cultural field and how they envision the future.

The publication aims to gather a spectrum of perspectives to explore the roles of specific initiatives within their particular localities. The contributors have produced works that speak of their experiences within arts institutions, collaborative curatorial initiatives, expanding on the relationship between institutions and artists, markets, local and international audiences, and current political climates.
