Wael Shawky (Alexandria, Egypt, 1979) is one of the most fascinating contemporary Arab artists. He investigates history, its interpretations, and the ways in which the past in uences the present. This catalog is dedicated to his research on the history
of the Crusades, embodied in his environments, lms, sculptures, and drawings. These works, narrated from an Arab pain of view, shed new light on the roots of some of the major cultural and sociopolitical crises of today.
