BIDOUN -- Current Issue

BIDOUN -- Current Issue
Recieved today from Antonia Carver
In its sixth issue, BIDOUN – the arts and culture magazine from the
East – turns its attention to the thorny subject of envy. Taking on
everything from the evil eye in Cairo to class structures in the
international art world, via American universities in the Gulf and fast
in Tehran, the issue is in turns witty, light, serious and polemical,
always highly original.

Artists commissioned for this issue of the magazine include Shirana
Shahbazi, a winner of the Citibank Photography Prize, and Istanbul
Ahmet ?güt and Sener ?zmen, who have designed an unusual colouring book
readers. Our regular travel column peruses the international hotel
scene in
Baghdad; the architecture section looks at the legacy of XL Modernism
in the
Middle East; while the art, film, design, products, fashion and books
sections take in the latest developments in the diverse cultural life
of the
Middle East.
