Nadia Ayari Discusses Political Art on Artforum

November 2016

Nadia Ayari as well as Carrie Mae Weems, Matthew Weinstein, Marilyn Minter, Hans Haacke, Nancy Chunn, and Vitaly Komar discuss political art with Artforum.


“I’ve been looking at Anna Mendieta’s ‘Tomb Views’ […] and when I look at those, I see myself, when I look at the ledger drawings, I see myself. The same way I see myself when I look at the faces of Syrian refugees that come across my computer scree. And I think it’s that openness that we can’t predict and so we exaggerate it because we think the institutions can take care of it for us. But we need to demand form the audience and from ourselves to be very open in order to feel things and to be shaken up” – Nadia Ayari
