Where Were You When The Lights Went Out (2013)
Yemeni Artist SALWA ALERYANI

In this series, Salwa Aleryani collects electricity bills from her family and writes on them different verses from poems that reference light and darkness, literal or metaphorical, seeking to criticize the current blackouts and lack of electricity Yemen is experiencing at a time when they are producing more than sufficient energy resources. From this, she tries to understand how that darkness affects ones emotions and mental state, since one can predict that without electricity an individual is left in a state of active discovery rather than mere a routine. Even in darkness and stillness ones mind is always occupied with thoughts that allows them to reflect and ponder. In addition, she also tries to reflect on the value of those two outlets; electricity and poetry, and how much they shape our perceptions of darkness and guidance, if one is to think of light as guidance. In these two samples, the artist chose a verse from Pablo Neruda's Critical Sonata (top) and a verse by Yemeni poet Abdulhakim Alfaqih (bottom).

Five days ago (5th of September) the Iraqi Airforce bombed the Children’s Department of Al Hawija General Hospital near Kirkuk. The airstrike targeted that department specifically, leaving more than 20 dead and 40 injured, mostly women and children. This video here is taken a couple of days after the event. People of Al Hawija in particular have been brutalized from all sides; U.S Airstrikes, ISIS, and the Iraqi government/military. With all of this intentional murder by the Iraqi Military that has been going on for months (if not years if you want to consider all the events prior to the recent airstrikes), you still have Iraqis who are blatantly supporting this corrupt savage institution and demonstrating across the world in its support.

fuck the u.s, fuck the iraqi military, and fuck isis.

Bernice Bing (1936 - 1998)
A San Francisco native, Chinese American, artist, lesbian, community activist—Bernice Bing, was a bridge between many worlds. She came of age during the Beat era and entered the San Francisco arts landscape in the 1960s with her paintings, which synthesize abstract modernist painting with Chinese calligraphy.

Photo series from collective ActiveStills, attempting to tell some of the individual stories of Palestinians in Gaza, and highlight the extraordinary solidarity and unsung heroism which was shown in so many ways during the 51 days of bombing and terror.

The stories behind the photos

Kids have started back to school in Gaza (after delays because of the assault). More than 500,000 returned, but many kids didn’t. 24 schools were fully destroyed, 125 schools were partly destroyed, and hundreds of kids were killed. The pieces of paper in the empty spaces are the names of those killed by Israel’s attack.
