In the framework of “Has the World Already Been Made? x 4+1″ Haseeb Ahmed has invited the collective Chalo Chalo Lahore Chalo from Lahore, Pakistan to present a set of text based pieces as well as real time internet performances. The group collective is engaged with trying to map a new ‘psychogeography’ of the ancient and dense city. These works speak to the immediacy and mediation between people but also between vast geographic distances.
Also included in the installation is a version of the artwork ‘Miniature World’ which Haseeb Ahmed produced for the Lahore Literary Festival earlier this year with the collective. Curator Nav Haq of MUKHA, Antwerp has contributed an forthcoming essay reflecting on Pakistan, art, and education. Artists included are Fazal Rizvi, Rabya Naseer, and Saira Ansari.
