The Beirut-based graphic design and visual culture publication Journal Safar has launched its fourth issue, Nostalgia, with a public talk exploring how the region's past could be reimagined today.Speaking at the launch event, the Khatt Foundation's founding director Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFares noted the need for Arab visual culture to redefine itself in a postcolonial era, describing a shift in attitudes that meant the Arab world no longer looked to the West as an example.Echoing AbiFares and Nawar, Moumne reflected on the growing trend in Arab visual culture to celebrate its origins and archive the work of graphic designers.Founders Imam and Moumne said they were also keen to showcase the world of graphic design to a wider audience.
