The Worker’s Trap: An Interview with Sara Rahbar

[Artist Sara Rahbar in her New York studio. Photo credit Arash Yaghmaian.]

Dirty gold is the color that smothers every surface of Sara Rahbar’s New York City studio. Disembodied casts of the artist’s own anxiously clenched hands and feet are laid out, clinically, on long tables alongside bullet casings, rifle butts, chains, and other found objects. With the same studied intensity that won her the art world’s lofty recognition for her earlier textiles, Rahbar spent the past two years with her ebony hair pulled back out of her face, hunched over these tables, teaching herself how to sculpt. We held our interview in Dubai at Carbon 12, the gallery that represents Rahbar, which is tucked in a warehouse in the gritty industrial area of Al Quoz, a ...

Hisham Aidi, Rebel Music: Race, Empire, and the New Muslim Youth Culture. New York: Pantheon, 2014. Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Hisham Aidi (HA): This book grows out of two experiences. The first: in the early 2000s, I was working as a cultural reporter covering Harlem and the South Bronx, writing about migration, youth culture, and gentrification. Back then, I was also doing some work as a DJ and concert-promoting. Harlem is a cultural cauldron—you have these dizzying flows between West Africa, Western Europe, the Caribbean, and elsewhere. I was witnessing up close the making, remaking, and globalization of black culture. I was struck by the ...

يدي شجرةٌ، فاستظلّ بفيئها

[اللوحة للفنانة هناء مال الله]

Top 100 on Jadaliyya in 2014

This is a list of the most read articles in 2014. Thanks to you, this year has by far attracted the broadest readership we have had since Jadaliyya's inception in 2010. Significantly, 2014 was also the year in which our Arabic articles readership grew exponentially, along with our general readership from within the region. Unfortunately, the daily news and developments from and within the region are far from rosy.  We hope we are contributing to mitigating the effects of bad news by providing alternative sound analysis and reporting, as well as literary and cultural material. Equally significant, we hope that the research resources and tools we are publishing ...

Cairo Past Futures

“Cairo Past Futures” consists of twenty-four photographs, each combined with a headline extracted from the Egyptian press of the 1950s and 60s. Headlines like “This is Tomorrow’s Cairo” and “Urban Planning in the Era of Revolution” are superimposed on images of contemporary Cairo depicting scenes such as speculative informal housing properties on the edge of Giza and dilapidated social housing blocks in Bulaq. These two-layer montages combining text and image put to the test past promises about the city’s future pronounced in state-censored magazines and newspapers during the Gamal Abdel Nasser regime. After the 1952 coup d’état in Egypt by Nasser and other Free ...

Khalvat: Towards Meaning

Sahand Hesamiyan’s Khalvat (2014) resembles a futuristic vessel. Composed of a circular shell, the thin ribs that begin at the work’s oculus create a sense of propulsion as they extend into narrow piers. With triangular pieces adjoined to its lattice frame at forty-five degree angles, the projectile sculpture appears to spin in space, defying the spatial and temporal limitations of a stationary object. In several recent works, Hesamiyan selects an element of Islamic architecture then reconfigures its ...

إسرائيل أكثر عنصريةً من مجموع قوانينها، ومما تنصّ عليه هذه القوانين وأنظمة تطبيقها وممارستها. بل إن صيغ القوانين القائمة فيها تخفيف شكلي للجوهر وتبرير للسياسات المنبثقة عنه، فالقوانين فيها تجميل منمّق بمفردات ليبرالية للجوهر. وقانون القومية يكشف الجوهر بشكل جليّ. إن الحجّة المركزية التي أنطلق منها في ادعائي المذكور، هي أن القوانين كلّها، كما الدولة الرسمية، تتعامل مع أنها في حلِّ من سبق قيامها والإعلان الرسمي عنها ووثيقة استقلالها، وهي وثيقة إعلان المستعمر الصهيوني عن إنجاز مشروعه، ولا توجد وثيقة مرجعية ...
