The Exit by KhaledNoaman

The Madrassa of Al-Nasir Muhammad is a madrassa and mausoleum located in the Bayn al-Qasrayn region of Cairo, Egypt. It was built in the name of the Mamluk sultan Al-Nasir Muhammad ibn Qalawun, but its construction began in 1296 under the reign of Sultan Al-Adil Kitbugha, who was sultan in between Al-Nasir Muhammad’s first and seconds reigns. When Al-Nasir Muhammad returned to the throne in 1299 he oversaw its construction until its completion in 1303.[1] The Islamic historian Al-Nuwayri records that Al-Adil Kitbugha built the mausoleum along with the prayer iwan, and Al-Nasir Muhammad completed the construction of the building and added the minaret.[2] Also, the Islamic historian Al-Maqrizi reports that Al-Adil Kitbugha oversaw construction of the building up to the top of the inscription band, and Al-Nasir Muhammad carried out the rest of its construction.

MAREO MERZ, 2013
Peschereccio, automobile appartenuta a Mario Merz, rete da pesca, ferro. 7 x 12,3 mt

Mareo Merz è un peschereccio in legno che tiene sospesa nella rete una vecchia automobile: l’ultima macchina appartenuta a Mario Merz. Creando un affascinante effetto di spaesamento, l’opera porta la dimensione del mare dentro una corte molto ampia ma chiusa. Si crea qui un’interazione tra l’architettura monumentale nel cuore della città e le lontane coste italiane. L’automobile ripescata richiama una memorabile operazione artistica di Merz ed è un omaggio all’Arte Povera torinese.
