Wael Shawky: Al Araba Al Madfuna

Go to overview

The Egyptian artist Wael Shawky is a storyteller: historiographical and literary sources form the starting point for his film narratives, in which he interweaves myths, facts, and fiction. His new, large-scale video installation is based on his personal experiences in Al Araba Al Madfuna in Upper Egypt where he restages with children the story of a local shaman.

The book is published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, ISBN: 978-3-86335-309-4.
