"For several years now, I have been working on the history of art practice in Iraq, in relation to the trajectory of leftist politics in the Middle East. I have come to focus on a period, in the aftermath of a coup by the Ba’ath Party in 1963, when the persecution of leftists resulted in disillusionment with political ideologies and a withdrawal from the public sphere. During that period, a number of artists and writers turned away from leftist politics, in search of new political concepts. I am currently working on a book that describes their turn to a concept derived from the history of Islam, and their rehabilitation of this concept, both as a concept of representation and a concept of politics."

Freed From ISIS, Yazidi Women Return in ‘Severe Shock’
Since the operation to take back Mosul began last year, approximately 180 women, girls and children from the Yazidi ethnic minority who were captured in 2014 by the Islamic State, or ISIS, have been liberated, according to Iraq’s Bureau for the Rescue of Abductees.

Women rescued in the first two years after ISIS overran their ancestral homeland came home with infections, broken limbs and suicidal thoughts. But now, after three years of captivity, women like Souhayla and two others seen last week by reporters, are far more damaged, displaying extraordinary signs of psychological injury.

The Controversial Iraqi Militia That Prefers Social Work To Politics | Niqash, April 5, 2018
The fighters are members of the al-Abbas Combat Brigade, which numbers around 7,000 and was formed by the country’s most senior Shiite Muslim cleric, Ali al-Sistani, in the summer of 2014, in response to attacks by the extremist group known as the Islamic State. The brigade has infantry battalions as well as engineering and heavy weapons specialists and was just one of several other major fighting groups formed in response to the security crisis that started then.
