Art & Political Analysis


Author on his bike.jpg - This bike was my best friend for 3 years in Kabul, accompanying me on my wanderings day and night

I lived in Kabul for six and a half years. In 2000 I set up an office in Kabul for the preservation of Afghan cultural heritage; from 2001 to 2003 I worked as political affairs officer for the UN and from 2003 to 2006 I set up and directed a foundation for culture and civil society. I was also country director for the Open Society Institute.

I still travel regularly to Kabul for cultural research.
