Tarek is back in Kabul for the summer, researching his thesis (on the reconstruction effort) and emailed these pictures that I'm posting on his behalf. The man on the left is our great-uncle, Dr. Ludin, one of the only members of our family who stayed in Afghanistan throughout the civil war period. (Mariam)

Kabul:Reconstructions is an installation
and public dialogue project that explores the multiple meanings and resonances of
the idea of reconstruction -- as both process and metaphor -- in the context of present-day Kabul.
www.kabul-reconstructions.net is an online discussion forum, information resource, and medium for the communication of questions and answers about the reconstruction between people inside and outside the city of Kabul itself.
