I recall my father reading daily newspapers every morning
Walid Sadek intervenes with an image of the thickness of Assafir’s newspaper – its cross-section. The sentence in Arabic reads ‘I recall my father reading daily newspapers every morning’. The work addresses a past generation that grew up reading daily newspapers, a generation for whom that printed medium was a necessary component of the public sphere. Sadek also implicitly addresses his father who was a prominent figure of that generation and a contributor to the public sphere as a caricaturist.
