Wael Shawky: Cabaret Crusades DrawingsWael Shawky: Cabaret Crusades Drawings

Published by Kunsthaus Bregenz.
Edited with text by Thomas D. Trummer. Text by Omar Berrada.

Cabaret Crusades Drawings is an extraordinary limited-edition pop-up book by Egyptian artist Wael Shawky (born 1971).

The pop-ups are based on seven drawings by Shawky that in turn are inspired by the Arabian calligraphers, colorists and storytellers working just before the First Crusade. Thus, a two-headed animal bears castles upon its back; a gigantic camel straddles mountains. Meticulously precise yet dreamlike, Shawky’s drawings swarm with waxen incident and narrative detail, displaying worlds equally alien and familiar, diffuse and present. A virtuoso work of book art, and an exquisitely conceived sculptural extension of drawing, Cabaret Crusades Drawings includes essays by Thomas D. Trummer and Omar Berrada explore the historical foundations and current relevance of Shawky’s drawings and the particular role of draftsmanship within Shawky’s body of work as a whole.

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.
