Afghanistan In My Soul
An exclusive interview with Edward Zellem
INTRODUCTION: Mohammad Sajid Arghandaiwal is a documentary filmmaker from Kabul. He is becoming a prominent voice and social activist for peace. He is writing two books. He began with little more than an idea and a mobile phone. He is the future of Afghanistan. He is 19 years old.
Mohammad Sajid Arghandaiwal speaks here in Part One of a two-part interview with Edward Zellem, author of “Zarbul Masalha: 151 Afghan Dari Proverbs.”
EZ: Western art is generally classified by type or period, such as Impressionism, Dadaism, Realism, Cubism, and others. Does Afghan art have these types of categories? What is your favorite type of art? Who is your favorite artist?
MS: I can only speak of what I know about Afghan art history. I have read a lot of old books, especially old books of poetry. I like books that are designed with Minatory art, a very ancient style of kaleidoscopic design. In my opinion not enough academic research has been done on Afghan art history. A hundred books could be written on that topic.
