Book Launch | Mahmoud Khaled & Marwan Kaabour

23 September '22 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Join artist Mahmoud Khaled and designer Marwan Kaabour as they discuss their collaboration on the new artist book Fantasies on a Found Phone, Dedicated to the Man Who Lost it, co-published by BookWorks and The Mosaic Rooms, which accompanied the exhibition of the same name currently on at The Mosaic Rooms.

Drawn from an unlocked phone, found in a public toilet, the images and texts present a portrait of a stranger. Moving between the erotic, intimate, baroque and everyday, the compulsive sequence of images references the dissonant and voyeuristic experience of scrolling through social media and swiping in dating apps, and the clash of hyper-capitalist forces of productivity and technology with the intimacy of a queer male gaze.

This event is presented in partnership with The Photographers’ Gallery.
