About this title


Pars Pro Toto II was, like the first volume in 2008, developed in the course of a close dialogue between the German Egyptian artist Susan Hefuna and the editor, Hans Ulrich Obrist. It presents Hefuna’s recent body of work.

Susan Hefuna’s work has been widely exhibited at such venues as the Louvre, Paris; Townhouse Gallery, Cairo; the House of World Cultures, Berlin; the Third Line Gallery, Dubai; Sharjah Biennial; Albion Gallery, London and New York; the New Museum, New York; and Sevilla Biennial. She has been nominated for the 2009 Jameel Prize by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, and will be included in the Venice Biennial in 2009.
