The Craft

Using childish speculations as a lens onto longstanding geopolitical dramas, The Craft draws on Monira al
Qadiri’s upbringing in Kuwait in the late 1980s and early 1990s to ask: “Were my parents conspiring with
aliens behind my back?” Employing childish drawings and home video footage, the artist unpacks this
central question to probe soft power structures and consider the science fictive qualities of oil futures,
war, and waning empires.
