Ali Imam (Pakistan), Untitled (Deserted Town with a Black Sun), 1956.
Greetings from the desk of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research.
Calamities are familiar to the people of Pakistan who have struggled through several catastrophic earthquakes, including those in 2005, 2013, and 2015 (to name the most damaging), as well as the horrendous floods of 2010. However, nothing could prepare the fifth most populated country in the world for this summer’s devastating events, which began with high temperatures and political chaos followed by unimaginable flooding.
