Iraqi Politics and Cultures
AIRED:
Visualizing Iraqi Politics and Cultures in Iraq and the DiasporaIn the 1960s and 1970s, Baghdad emerged as a vital cultural center in the Arab world.

The Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School and The Center for Book Arts in conjunction with their exhibition Dafatir: Contemporary Iraqi Book Art presents a panel discussion moderated by exhibition curator, Nada Shabout a leading authority on Iraqi contemporary art and a consultant to the U.S. Department of State Cultural Antiquities Task Force, explore the proliferation of the book as an art form pursued by contemporary Iraqi artists; the relationship between Islamic manuscripts and contemporary book art, notions of identity and resistance to the erasure of identity, and the experience of exile.moreless
