Following The Tempest Society (2017), the original video installation commissioned for documenta 14, which took Athens as a site to reflect on radical equality, democracy and theatre as a civic space, the book brings to light the specific history, the archive, and the ongoing resonance of the agit-prop theatre group ‘Al-Assifa’ in the context of urgent economic, political and humanitarian upheaval.

With contributions from Abdellali Hajjat, Hendrik Folkerts, Pothiti Hantzaroula, and interviews with Philippe Tancelin, surviving member of Al Assifa, Bouchra Khalili, Omar Berrada, and Alexandre Kauffmann, and Isavella Alopoudi, Elias Kiama Tzogonas, and Giannis Sotiriou, the performers in The Tempest Society.

Published by Book Works in an edition of 1,500; soft cover with a dust jacket; 200pp; full colour throughout; 165mm × 235mm; designed by A Practice for Everyday Life.

This takeaway publication on Khalili’s film Twenty-Two Hours gathers together commissioned essays and an interview with the artist, as well as archival material, including from the Black Party Party’s newspaper. 

A visual and textual investigation on Twenty-Two Hours, The Radical Ally provides with an examination of the conception of allyship as embodied by Genet: not speaking for, not speaking on behalf nor in-lieu of, but from the position of the witness.

With contributions by Jackie Wang, Bonaventure Ndikung, Patricia J. Williams, and Bouchra Khalili.

Edited by Xavier Nueno, co-edited by Bouchra Khalili. Graphic Design: León Muñoz Santini. Published by Gato Negro Ediciones and instituto de investigaciones independientes. 36 pages. First published for Khalili’s solo exhibition “Poets & Witnesses” at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2019).
