Author: Sadik Kwaish Alfraji


The publication covers over thirty years of his practice, from his student work of the early 1980s in a war-torn Iraq, to his many artist books, paintings, drawings, videos, and large-scale installations. It provides an in-depth overview of Alfraji’s work, which combines artistic and philosophical concepts to create a distinct graphical visual language. Alfraji’s oeuvre addresses the vulnerability of human existence and speaks of loss, exile, fragmentation and displacement.

Sadik Kwaish Alfraji was born in Baghdad in 1960. He lives and works in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections in the Middle East and internationally.

The book is edited by the leading curator and critic of contemporary Middle Eastern art Nat Muller, and includes an in-depth interview with the artist and a critical text by renowned cultural historian of the Middle East and Professor at Brown University Shiva Balaghi.
