Khabar Keslan is an independently run, volunteer-based, primarily English-language online review featuring art and critique relating to Middle East, Africa, and/or South (East) Asia (MESAEA). This is a dedicated platform for dissidents, artists, critics, and those on the margins.
We are deeply unimpressed by the representation of the region; hence our name, “Khabar Keslan,” or lazy news. Coverage of these regions tends to emphasize violence, chaos, and corruption. But the region is also complex, beautiful, and wrought with passionate voices.
As much as destruction characterizes the region, so does creation.
