From Z to A and Zaha Again by Shumon Basar


Earlier this year, Shumon Basar recorded this reading dedicated to Zaha Hadid who passed away last year on 31st March 2016. It was for the Zaha Hadid: Early Paintings and Drawings exhibition at the Serpentine Slacker Gallery in London.  

Shumon Basar is a writer, thinker and cultural critic. Between 1996 and 1999 he worked at the then-named Office of Zaha Hadid. Here for a Facebook Live post, he reads his lexicon dedicated to Hadid 'From Z to A and Zaha Again' next to The Peak, at the private view of Zaha Hadid: Early Paintings and Drawings.
