Riad Ismail El Ayyoubi

Caseworker (Consultant)

Riad works as a caseworker based in Tripoli. His research interests include studying the social and political history of cities in the eastern Arab world, as well as the trilateral relationship connecting the built environment, people, and language(s), all in order to push for the reclamation of (historical) tools in populating the earth, and tools to dismantle the oppressive modes of (private) property, and the divisive binary of individual and communal interests, such as land revival and innovative imaginaries. He is also a member of Kohl’s translation team and has translated a number of articles on subjects including Feminism, anti-colonialism, and biopolitics.
