Francis Al˙s: Children’s Games

Text by Cuauhtémoc Medina, David MacDougall, Francis Al˙s, Jaap Guldemond, Marente Bloemheuvel.

Francis Al˙s: Children’s Games

Francis Al˙s’ refreshing observations on children’s play across the world

Since 1999, Mexico-based artist Francis Al˙s (born 1959) has been documenting children at play in countries across the globe, from rock paper scissors in Mexico City to knucklebones in Kathmandu, Nepal, to hopscotch in a Yezidi refugee camp in Iraq. Amid shouts of laughter and goodnatured bickering, the subjects of Al˙s’ series represent the universality of youthful play and imagination even in politically contentious environments.

Children’s Games is a unique record of humanity through its youngest members, serving as a testament to the time in a person’s life where, despite everything, the biggest conflict was still whether someone had cheated at musical chairs. This book collects Al˙s’ social project of films, performative actions, drawings, documents and paintings into a single publication for the first time, with contributions by curator and art historian Cuauhtémoc Medina and ethnographer and filmmaker David MacDougall.
