My book

The Contemporary Art Scene in Syria

 Social Critique and an Artistic Movement

was published by Routledge in June 2020

The Contemporary Art Scene in Syria focuses on the expanding contemporary art scene in Syria, particularly Damascus, during the first decade of the twenty-first century and considers it within the history of committed and engaged art in the country. The 2000s were characterized by a high degree of experimentation as young artists began to work with artistic media that were new in Syria, such as video, installation and performance art. They were rethinking the role of artists in society and looking for ways to reach audiences in a more direct manner and address socio-cultural and socio-political issues.
