Fehras Publishing Practices  |  Visual Arts  |  2018  |  Syria
This project addresses the publishing practices of the 1950s and 1960s in the Middle East, through the publication of illustrated stories that will appear in magazines to be presented in exhibitions in Berlin and Beirut. These stories are inspired by real personalities who were active in the cultural realm during this period, combining business relations, friendship and love, financing and political discord. They have operated in international institutions and publishing houses that practiced cultural policies in the transmission of their ideologies.
