Nabil Ahmed, Ben White and Eileen Simpson

Nabil Ahmed – contemporary visual artist, writer and musician who explores the informal, hidden, public, and political architecture of mosques. Most recently conceived as a parallel event to the 12th Istanbul Biennale, Does the Bus Stop Here? uses sound recordings made inside prayer spaces at various locations in Paris, London and Istanbul.

 

Eileen Simpson and Ben White work at the intersection of art, music and information networks. They seek to challenge conventional mechanisms for the authorship, ownership and distribution of culture – particularly through working with archive material. Their ongoing project Open Music Archive is an initiative to source, digitise and distribute out-of-copyright sound recordings and is a vehicle for collaborative projects exploring the material’s potential for reuse.

 

Recent projects include Song Division at Camden Arts Centre (2011); The Brilliant and the Dark at The Women’s Library, London (2010); Struggle in Jerash at Gasworks, London and Makan and Whitechapel Gallery (2010).

Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum.

Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.
