Founded in 2020, Mathqaf (مَثقَف) is a space and source for art and culture from West Asia and North Africa (WANA). As a research-based platform and a curatorial collective, we publish, curate, collaborate and champion art through documentation of artists’ lives and institutional histories, articles and interviews with curators, collectors, and institutions hailing from all over the region and its diasporas.
