The artistic practice of Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti explores and acts within and against the condition of permanent temporariness that permeates contemporary forms of life. In their research and project-based approach, art exhibitions are both sites of display and sites of action that spill over into other contexts. This book is organised around fourteen concepts that activate seventeen projects. Each is the result of a larger process of collaboration, and is accompanied by individual and collective texts and interviews that expand and contextualise the reach of every intervention. Contributors include Charles Esche, Okwui Enwezor, Salwa Mikdadi, Grupo Contrafilé, and others.
