A talk on her journey in Afghanistan by Editor Bina Sarkar Ellias. Poetry reading by Zohra Saed, screening of a docu-film by Shireen Pasha
and Q&A with fashion designer Zolaykha Sherzad, and make-up artist Matin Maulawizada.

Gallerie’s 23rd issue, “Understanding Afghanistan” a valuable collective, brings you features and stories of a country beyond the north-west frontier province. A country that has become synonymous with the Taliban. But little is known about its contemporary culture.

This issue addresses the socio-political and cultural contexts of Afghanistan while
celebrating its contemporary art, music, theatre, photography, cinema, poetry;
the Afghan people and their lives.

The issue includes a free CD of exquisite Afghan music and a beautiful docu-DVD of
“Slowly Slowly Mud and Lotus”, a film tracing the interface between imagination and reason in the lives of Afghan artisans.
