Fantasies on a Found Phone, Dedicated to the Man Who Lost It


ISBN: 978 1 912570 25 6

Softcover: 144 pages
Publisher: Books Works and The Mosaic Rooms, A. M. Qattan Foundation, 2022
Language: English

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 publication accompanies Mahmoud Khaled‘s first UK solo exhibition Fantasies on a Found Phone, Dedicated to the Man Who Lost It (22/06/22—25/09/22) at The Mosaic Rooms and is co-published by Book Works and The Mosaic Rooms as part of Book Works Co-Series No. 23. Designed by Marwan Kaabour.

Edition of 1,000 copies.
