Professor Azoulay's new book will be released on November 19, 2019 by Verso.

"Potential History - Unlearning Imperialism" (Verso, Nov 2019)

November 12, 2019
Professor Honig wrote a foreword for this book "America Recovered."

America Recovered collects forty images that mark one of the only efforts to document the breadth of projects funded by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Unlike the New Deal and other programs designed for employment and infrastructural development, the Recovery Act was passed without any funds dedicated for photographic documentation. Using an official government website as his guide, Chad Ress took photographs of projects across the country. The publication of America Recovered at this moment allows for a critical reassessment of the Act and its lasting impact on the American landscape.

Errata Exhbition by Professor Ariella Azoulay
Fundació Antoni Tàpies Carrer d’Aragó 255, 08007 Barcelona

Following the release of her new film Un-documented: Undoing Imperial Plunder, Ariella Aïsha Azoulay's latest exhibition Errata aims to help unlearn imperial structures such as nation states, borders or the status of being “undocumented.”

Consisting of eight projects, Azoulay's latest work is a series of ‘rehearsals’ in non-imperial modes of archival literacy and in repairing printed errors in the context of colonial projects. She uses photography to explore these ideas in an interesting and thought-provoking way.
