52,00

View From Inside is an expansive presentation of contemporary Arab photography, video, and mixed media art from the Middle East and North Africa. The book shows the works of 49 leading Arab artists from 13 different countries. The works reflect the emergence of photographic, video and digital art as important forms of creative visual expression in the Arab world since the 1990s. The artworks address a broad range of issues that the artists themselves have defined as important to the modern Arab experience.

Four texts cover the early appearance of photography in the Middle East and North Africa in the mid-nineteenth century through photography’s evolution as an integral part of the contemporary Arab art world.
