Check Out Bidoun

Finally, there is a magazine devoted to the global Arab and Persian Art scene. Published in Brooklyn, Bidoun Magazine covers the world of Art, Architecture, Theater, Music, etc. Written and designed in a very professional and stylish fashion, it is something to proudly display on your coffee table or to discuss with your friends during sunday brunch.

The word Bidoun stands for "Those Without" in Arabic, and "To Know" in Farsi. The idea behind the publication, according to their web site, is to create a virtual space for Arab and Iranian artists from all over the world to share ideas, display works, and network. It's a great time that comes at a time when the world really needs to be exposed and educated more about the Middle East.

Check it out today.
