*From the project One Hundred Thousand Solitudes



“During the siege of Tahrir Square by the Egyptian army, stories were told of an old woman who would fill her basket with mangos every morning; she would then make the rounds tracing the boundaries of the square, giving every soldier a mango as she said: ‘Do not kill your brother’.” Tony Chakar

A talk about love, traces, tracing, binding and making space.
