Zero + Publishing has released the Deluxe Edition of Asad Faulwell's monograph Les Femmes d'Alger, which features a signed copy of the hard cover publication along with a custom constructed laser etched wooden box and a hand painted print.
The monograph features essays by Art Critic and Curator David Pagel and Independent Curator and Editor Franklin Sirmans as well as an interview with Guggenheim UBS Map Curator, Middle East and North Africa Sara Raza.
The 72-page illustrated tome surveys Faulwell ongoing series Les Femmes D'Alger, a body of work that examines issues of colonization, faith, power and gender relations within the political history of the post-colonial Middle East. His series of small and large-scale mixed media paintings is focused on specific Algerian female freedom fighters who actively engaged in combat during the Algerian War of Independence (1954-62). Djamila Bouhired, Zohra Drif, Hassiba Ben Bouali, Ourida Meddad, and Danielle Minne are a few of the many women that Faulwell studied and highlighted through his paintings.
