Monira Al Qadiri
We are delighted to present the tenth iteration of our screening series with a work by Berlin-based artist Monira Al Qadiri.
Al Qadiri is a Kuwaiti artist who creates works that explore gender, politics and petro-cultures. Her works often draw upon personal experiences. The Craft is an exploration of her experience growing up in the 1980s Americanised Kuwait. Interlacing biography, fantasy and science fiction the film reimagines the last thirty years of Gulf history and the closing stages of the American Century as a series of childish fictions involving a succession of alien encounters.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
