The Revolutionary, No-Bullshit Art of Ganzeer
The 32-year-old Egyptian artist's first New York solo show takes on police brutality and the crimes committed by the American government.
In New York State's Human Trafficking Intervention Courts, prostitutes might be called victims, but they're still arrested, still handcuffed, and still held in cages.
Police kill. They get away with it. They kill again. Eventually, you realise that this process is not a bug in the system but a feature.
We need art that asks hard questions.
Fetishising the hooker with a heart of gold, extrajudicially.
Where detainees are rewarded with pizza if they inform.
Drawings from the secretive and odd military commission trial of the alleged mastermind of 9/11.
Especially if some quota-filling cop thinks you look like a whore.
