Meanwhile, Turkey, which sees the PYD as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) with which it has been in conflict since ...

كابوس يوم/كل يوم

[لوحة للفنانة السورية لينا ديب]

كيف عدتُ إلى المدينة؟ كيف دخلت؟ من مطار أم معبر برّي؟ مَن سمح بإدخالي؟ هل حقاً ليس عليّ أي ”منع سفر“ أو ”مذكرة اعتقال“؟ "يا للحظ!ّ". أقف في شارع الثامن من آذار "المجيد". أقف على رأس زلعومه وأنظر حولي. أين أذهب الآن؟ طفل ثلاثيني، صام دهراً و ربح تذكرة عبور إلى عالم الشوكولا. من أين أبدأ؟ من أزور أولاً، أين أتسكّع، و أين أجلس؟ أين أشرب القهوة, أين آكل الفتّة، على من أسلّم؟ عادة ما ينتهي الحلم هنا عندما أحاول أن آخذ خطوتين أو أكثر باتجاه مارتقلا ، أو شرقاً باتجاه ساحة الشيخ ضاهر فأشعر بثقل أرجلي و شللها. حلم يتكرر منذ خمس سنوات. يحمل ما يكفي من الصفات ليترقّى إلى رتبة "كابوس أول" لما يتركه من تعكّر نوساتالجي على مزاجي، يرافقني ...

The Origins of Dreams: An Interview with Safwan Dahoul

Safwan Dahoul’s recent paintings indicate several new developments in his ongoing Dream series, the influential body of work that has distinguished his career. Although the psychologically laden paintings are widely exhibited and collected, little is known about the origins of the series other than the fact that it began as an autobiographical reflection of time but has since grown to represent the mounting devastation and desolation of the Syrian crisis. While I have written extensively on Dahoul’s work, I am still left with many questions. With each reading of the series, I continue to discover things, layers that I missed when focusing on other aspects of his ...

The director stopped, but apparently not quickly enough, for the guard beat him on the head with a rifle butt. Maleh passed out and woke to the voice of an officer apologizing in a ...
