Curated by Abed Al Kadiri
4 September - 18 December 2021
In March 2020, as the world came to a standstill, Dongola Publishing decided to reach out to artists scattered in different cities through handmade, hand-stitched books created and designed in-house by Reza Abedini. The books were mailed to all the artists invited to speculate on our present and shared future through the creation of their own artists' books. The artists' books are displayed at Villa Romana for a duration of 4 months, with every 4 weeks displaying 15 new artists.

Hoda TawakolCorps (in)visibles - (In)visible Bodies January 23, 2021
Institut français, Berlin's art space LES VITRINES
23 January – 28 March 2021
The curator Liberty Adrien is pleased to present the exhibition “Corps (in)visibles” by the Franco-Egyptian artist Hoda Tawakol at the new contemporary art space LES VITRINES of the Institut français Berlin. While her hand-dyed, colourful and intimately sewn textile sculptures clearly signpost questions of women’s labour, Hoda Tawakol also interrogates the wider yet more insidious forces (social, biological, cultural) impacting the female body. For the 24-meter-long windows, Hoda Tawakol has created a unique watercolour mural and a series of textile works.

Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Hamburg
22 September – 10 November 2019

We are pleased to share that Hoda Tawakol has been invited to participate and will display new hanging soft-sculptures referred to as Lures. Charged with the tactile sensuality of Louise Bourgeois and taking form as a cross between dismembered body parts or childhood toys, they become objects of temptation or attraction.
Hoda TawakolImmaculate March 4, 2019
Galerie im Marstall, Ahrensburg, Germany
31 March - 12 May 2019
Hamburg-based Franco-Egyptian artist Hoda Tawakol's upcoming exhibition at Galerie im Marstal, a public art space will stage an ambitious large-scale room installation, in which the artist examines the body as an important facet of identity and as a reflection of society itself. Her practice is a personal inquest into female corporeality and the universal perception of it, both in Middle Eastern and Western contexts, attempting to deconstruct symbols and archetypes that beset female agency.
