This is a groundbreaking mixture of art, politics, and pop culture that challenges the most common stereotypes and misconceptions about the Middle East. In collaboration with six illustrators, two curators, and a writer, artists Oreet Ashery and Larissa Sansour have created a unique graphic project - a comic-book story that takes a deftly humorous look at topical issues; raises question about artistic practice, the nature of authority, art and politics; and, offers an eye-opening take on Palestine as well as a futuristic vision of the region. The result is "The Novel of Nonel and Vovel" (the artist's alter egos), which sees the two artists given superpowers from a virus. Taking advantage of their new powers, and with the aid of fifty Ninja women, they strive to save Palestine. A bold mixture of art, politics, gaming culture, comics, sci-fi, and storytelling, this unique volume stands up and challenges the most prevalent stereotypes and misconceptions about the Middle East.
