Edited with text by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Marcella Beccaria. Text by Heinrich von Kleist, Laura U. Marks, Hoor Al-Qasimi, Lance M. Fung, Cesar Garcia, Abdellah Karroum, Hassan Khan, Doris Krystof, Ansgar Lorenz, Denize Marray, Jessica Morgan, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Wael Shawky, et al.

Wael Shawky (born 1971) is one of the most fascinating contemporary Arab artists. He investigates history, its interpretations and the ways in which the past influences the present. This catalog is dedicated to his research on the history of the Crusades, embodied in his environments, films, sculptures and drawings. These works, narrated from an Arab point of view, shed new light on the roots of some of the major cultural and sociopolitical crises of today. This catalog includes a new artist’s project consisting of drawings realized in dialog with Heinrich von Kleist’s essay “On the Marionette Theater” (1810), as well as new critical essays by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Laura U. Marks and a conversation between Marcella Beccaria and the artist. Together with archival materials and works related to Shawky’s film series Cabaret Crusades, the catalog presents a scholarly exhibition chronology.

Wael Shawky: Cabaret CrusadesWael Shawky: Cabaret Crusades

Published by Kerber.
Text by Doris Krystof, Ansgar Lorenz, Jacques Sapiega, Judith Wielander.

Egyptian multimedia artist Wael Shawky (born 1971) made a stir at Documenta 13 in 2012 with his elaborately produced epic marionette film trilogy Cabaret Crusades, which blends fiction and fact in an entirely unique coverage of the medieval crusades. Basing his work on extensive research and accounts from primary sources, the artist complicates the traditional clash of civilization narrative by depicting scenes that refute common notions of the era. Reenacting the events of the 11th and 12th centuries in a manner both childlike and chilling, Shawky's handmade puppets highlight the secular motivations of the European fighters and the competition and violence among Arab leaders.
This catalogue, published to accompany Shawky's exhibition at the K20, extensively documents the creative process behind the acclaimed film trilogy, exploring the ways in which Shawky's work--dramatic, cynical and surreal--employs a historical lens to probe and problematize contemporary culture.
