30 Days of Running in the Space: Ahmed Basiony for Egypt at la Biennale di Venezia

Shot by "security forces" during the Friday of Wrath in Cairo in January of this year, Basiony's work lives on. Indeed, knowing his story adds a haunting element to the work, but even without the information about his untimely death at the age of 32 the viewer can feel the importance of this work, its role in revolutionizing a mindset and therefore its enduring qualities.
