The #NMW Live Stream Canvas consists of a flow of references which study and expand on the exhibition’s themes and the festival as a whole. With, as our special guests, Egyptian artist and musician Kareem Lotfy and Babak Radboy & Item Idem. Lotfy grew up in both Western and Egyptian culture and his work deals with this cultural overlap. In 2008, Lotfy started working with monochrome glitch bitmaps which he used to generate sound compositions. Since then, he has experimented with digital media with which he he produces and presents his work that varies from electronic music to 3D sculptures. Babak Radboy who is based in New York and is the creative director of Bidoun Magazine & Item Idem – otherwise known as Cyril Duval – a conceptual stimulator often collaborate on controversial projects where art, fashion and design intersect.
