A Ruler

Copy, Bilal Chrif. Digital drawings printed to 35mm color slides, 5 x 5 cm

Hamad has a pencil. Humus has a pen. Hamad likes Humus.
"Hamad has a pencil" was the first sentence elementary students would practice from the Kuwait Ministry of Education curriculum. This sentence remained unchanged through the history of the ruler. Hamad and Humus both received the same state funded education. Education in Kuwait dominated the Palestinian strive during the ruler years, whether getting it or disseminating.
