Since 2015, Mophradat has been commissioning and publishing new writing on contemporary art, contemporary art history, and the conditions and contexts from which they emerge and inhabit. We work with artists, curators, writers, translators, musicians, and scholars from various disciplines to explore pertinent ideas, questions, and situations, disseminating their ideas and propositions.
Mophradat publications, books or other formats, either extend from our programming; are copublications such as with Kayfa ta, a publishing initiative by Maha Maamoun and Ala Younis of monographic books; or are commissioned projects on our website that expand the terms and translatability of the language in and of contemporary arts.
Publications are produced in both Arabic and English. Mophradat works with international publishers and distributors to ensure a broad circulation for our books.
