Yazan Khalili will participate in the 11th edition of the Shanghai Biennale, taking place from 11 November 2016 - 12 March 2017 at the Power Station of Art museum in  China. 


Why Not Ask Again?  - Maneuvers, Disputations & Storiesthe theme of this biennale is considered both a demand and a question, challenging viewers to raise  a multitude of questions, "where the unpredictable is something to be welcomed, not feared". Questions are likened to pressure points, giving them primacy in this edition of  the biennale "is like attending to the pressure points in the body of our contemporary world. Three clear conceptual pressure points are identified as fulcrums for the curatorial work – Maneuvers, Disputations and Stories, with which this biennale will yield an open ended, alive, curious image of our world."


Khalili will present two works for this year's edition: a photographic and text-based work entitled Scouting for Locations (2013) and a new adaptation of his 2013 project Robbery in Area A. Scouting for Locations. Read more
