The textures of spaces and the synaptic explosions they recall unravel in this contrasting collection of works from across the globe. Interrogating occupations of terrain and the experience of immigration, Minority Report presents a collision between official histories, personal memory, and the perilousness of translation, which are autopsied and brought back to life in both vivid and oblique terms. A kaleidoscopic encounter with colonialism and autonomy, surveillance and invisibility, language and illegibility, various displacements are exhumed from the morass of history and across spatial boundaries.

Curated by Nazlı Dinçel (in person!)
