Stan Douglas has long been concerned with critical sociocultural and political change. His exhibition for the 59th Venice Biennale, 2011 1848 reflects the language of protest, revolution and uprisings that took place around the world in 2011. Douglas' four large-scale hybrid documentary photographs re-enact protests in Tunis, London, New York and Vancouver, and his two-channel HD video ISDN features grime and mahraganat rappers exchanging subversive lyrics between studios in London and Cairo. The illustrated catalog contains around 100 color detailed photos that provide a glimpse behind the scenes of Douglas' lavish productions. Essays by international cultural scholars examine the artist's work in relation to music, political economy, contemporary media theory, and the rise of grime and mahraganat.
