Description - Monira Al Qadiri: Empire Dye by Tomke Tomke Braun, Kunstverein Goettingen

The young Kuwaiti Monira Al Qadiri (*1983) is one of the most important artistic voices of the Gulf region. She poetically combines the social upheavals of the past 30 years as well as the acute effects of the oil industry and belief systems with traditional elements from myth and history. By showing the ruptures between past and present symbolically - for instance, glass as a ghostly trace of the drilling machines in the desert - she quasi-speculates into a possible future. This book provides moving insights into Monira Al Qadiri's work of the past years. SELLING POINT: A fully illustrated monograph of works by Monira Al Qadiri 79 colour images
