A Stage for Any Revolution was an open modular ‘stage’ by artist Alia Farid based on an architectural model from 1929 by constructivist set designer, Victor Shestakov. The stage, re-envisaged for Edgware Road was used by the public in different ways; for long-distance participation in events happening across the Arab world, for sitting together to share discussions, for making declarations or speeches, for convening groups of people, and hosting events.

On 11 July, Alia Farid will launch the stage with a performance of Zoe Leonard’s I want a President… in Arabic and English. This collective reading is part of an ongoing project initiated by artists Malin Arnell, Kajsa Dahlberg, Johanna Gustavsson and Fia-Stina Sandlund in collaboration with artist Zoe Leonard.
