Contra Diction. Speech Against Itself

What techniques do we use when we navigate between the human voice, governmental law and the concept of justice in the technosphere? In a live audio essay, artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan explores the concept of taqiyya – a term from Islamic jurisprudence that allows a believing individual to deny their faith or commit otherwise illegal acts while they are at risk of persecution or in a condition of statelessness.

This performance was given during the Truth Measures investigation at the Technosphere × Knowledge event at HKW, Berlin, April 15, 2016.
