Monira Al Qadiri

Empire Dye

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 thirty 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. The book provides moving insights into Monira Al Qadiri’s work of the past years.
