Dear Aisha, Vol. 1 continues artist Daniel Bejar’s exploration of identity theft as experimental form. The book collects months of real emails Bejar exchanged with a scammer who wrote him posing as the millionaire daughter of late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Revisiting his own impersonation of Gaddafi’s wayward son (Operation Guest, 2014), Bejar draws his counterfeit sister into a bizarre, collaborative work of autofiction.
