Living Histories

Assisted the head curator in selecting works and developed supporting written content for this display, which highlighted recent acquisitions of posters, prints, drawings, photographs and artists’ books by the British Museum. Many of the artists come from Syria, their work produced following the uprisings that began in 2011 that have since resulted in full scale civil war. The British Museum collects art such as this in keeping with its role as a museum of history. These works speak of their time – they invite the viewer to look at the troubled politics of the Middle East today through a lens that is different from the world of the immediacy of media reports.
