Artists Oreet Ashery (a Israeli artist working in London) and Larissa Sansour (a Palestinian artist living in Copenhagen) collaborated to publish this new graphic novel, which promises:

“a bold mixture of art, politics, games, sci-fi, storytelling and other experiments – all rattling and shaking up the most prevalent ideas, stereotypes and misconceptions of the Middle East.”

“The Novel of Nonel and Vovel” tells the story of two super-power artists (the artists’ alter egos), 50 ninja woman, and a mission to save Palestine. Published earlier this year, the novel is available for purchase on the publisher’s website.
