Wael Shawky

1 Jul 2011 - 29 Aug 2011
Free exhibition, no booking required

Wael Shawky is one of Egypt’s most prominent contemporary artists, creating film, animation, drawings and sculptural installations. In his series of works 'Cabaret Crusades' he re-tells the story of the crusade, often blurring the distinction between good and evil, and between aggressors and victims. What at first sight appear like charming and harmless images and objects, soon reveal a darker side.
