Hannes Wanderer: " A radical, irritating artist book"
Zero comes from the Arabic word Safara, which means emptiness. The Arabs assigned to this number the lack of quantity. This book proposes an approach to the concept of zero through photographs taken in Libya and Syria during the armed conflict.
Between the beginning and the end. Between the positive and the negative. Pending. From the broken dreams of the Libyan revolution to the endless war in Syria that has plunged the country into chaos without any close solution.
Zero as the sum of multiple actors and situations that have failed to obtain any results so far, only an empty sum. Zero as a collapse.
