Bidoun - # 27 Diaspora
Summer 2012. Apart from Film, Food, Exhibitions and Books the Bidounites are interested in drawing pictures of people (Profiles) and works of art (Work in Progress), as well as asking questions and probing into the nature of the Diaspora of the people of the Middle East, such as the Armenians. For this issue the paintings of Jack Kevorkian are examined, the late Reza Abdoh, child prodigy, is presented in a most favourable light and the American participation (curated by Ranya Husami) at the Cairo Biennale has been laid bare. All about roots, identity, role models and pride.
