THE WAR ISSUE
Almost one year ago, our conversations with Ambit Magazine editor Kirsty Allison began. This led to us co-editing Ambit’s 248th issue THE WAR ISSUE. In collaboration with the catapult program of British Council Lebanon, Ambit and Dongola selected and published impactful art, stories and poetry on the tangents of war.
The 248th issue was launched on the 21st of September at Rough Trade East, London, UK; and on the 18th of November at Station, Beirut, lebanon.
Recently, this issue was acquired by the Serpentine Gallery in the UK.
