Right-to-Left Exhibition
1 December, 2012

I’ve shown so many images of this impressive show, so I won’t say too much. Mostly that if you are in Berlin in the next week (until December 9th, 2012), you must check this show out. Organized by the Berlin-based studio EPS51, they have brought together an array of designers, artists, and activists from across the Arab world in a remarkable way. Having now organized several exhibitions myself, I can more fully appreicate the efforts they put in and how outstanding the results are.

I finally visited the show after meeting one of the organizers, Ben Wittner, at the Babel symposium earlier in the week. The evening I stopped by there was a lecture by Huda Smitshuijzen-AbiFarès from Amsterdam. She spoke on Arabic Typography as an Agent of Resistance. If these topics interest you, there will be a few more: one on December 6th by Sandra Hetzl, Gabriela M. Keller, and guests from Syria; and the finissage on December 9th will host Nadine Chahine, Eps51, Pascal Zoghbi, and Antje Weitzel.

More info (and better images) are available at the Right-to-Left official website.

Check out for some wonderful drawings by Aleksandra Mir. This virtual gallery has many pieces from the collection in relatively large sizes and some good commentary from the artist and gallery. These type-intensive drawings have a historical/newsroom influence that is especially poignant in today’s environment. Here are a couple images to whet your appetite:
