untitled part 7.2 (from the installation: the heart that has no love/pain/generosity is not a heart) (2010) is filmed at Laisa-e-Maarifat (Marefat School), Dasht-e-Barchi, Kabul, Afghanistan. During the Marefat high school morning assembly, high school girls shift in with a few boys, while faculty enters the school courtyard at 5:30AM. They gather, lining up while Sufi songs play in the background. They begin to sing their school song, “the heart that has no love, pain, or generosity is not a heart”, and subsequently walk up the stairs to their classes.

Jayce Salloum is featured in the “Semipublic Intellectual” issue of the Quarterly Journal.
