Hawad, is a Tuareg poet and painter born in the Aïr (central Sahara). He writes in his language, Tamajaght (Amazigh linguistic family) that he writes in Tifinagh, the Tuareg alphabet. His fiction universe emerges from the tragedy and resistance of the Tuareg people, and of all other people threated by extinction. To fight againt the ultimate dispossession of the self or of the imaginary, Hawad has invented the “furigraphy,” a literary and pictorial approach envisionning lines of flight out of the scenario imposed by domination and violence. Hawad is the author of many books (poetry, short stories, plays) and his writing has been translated in several languages (French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, German, Catalan, Sami, Kurdish, Turkish, Arabic, and English).
