“It brings together artists from South Korea, Morocco and South Africa, in a joint attempt to confound the bitterness latent in a reactionary desire to destroy compassion, arrest human movement, and defy growth. A margin of error is designed to absorb a shortfall or contradiction in the event of a miscalculation or change in circumstance. Conceptually and practically flexible, it supposes the great likelihood that mistakes occur. As a principle, a margin of error is democratic, despite the cynicism that is also fixed to it. However, what a margin of error constitutively acknowledges is that life – politics, economics, art – is variable. There are no absolute guarantees, there is only infinite possibility, whether good or ill, which can as easily transform hell into heaven, heaven into hell.” – Ashraf Jamal.
