Proof is a printed visual archive composed of video screenshots from ISIS propaganda films, captured directly from the Internet. It shows how, since 2014, cultural history was physically destroyed by special units “Kata'ib Taswiya”. Proof is a documentation of the last moments of those sculptures and monuments, during and just after their collapse and destructions. Technically the book operates like a pictorial cheque book and its pages are pre-cuted, allowing the readers to tear the pages if they want to.
