Our annual Watch Edition always includes an extensive look back at Baselworld.

It would appear that ‘firsts’ fall comfortably into the lap of Shurooq Amin. Amongst many others, she’s the first Kuwaiti woman to have her work sold at auction by Christie’s and the first Kuwaiti to have participated at the Venice Biennale. These didn’t occur by chance, but instead as a result of years of work and dedication. She’s equally well known as being the first to have an exhibition shut down in high profile circumstances. Back with a solo show in Kuwait for the first time since the notorious closure of ‘It’s A Man’s World’ in 2012, it’s the perfect moment to take a look at what’s been happening in Shurooq’s world since then.
