Performing Democracy: Syrian Art Practices Today


Mohammad Al Attar and Zaher Omareen. Moderated by Rana Issa

Through their different media and production techniques, Zaher Omareen and Mohammad Al Attar will reflect on how democracy is performed in Syria today, and together with them we expect to question such stable constellations as artist, spectator, and stage. This line of questioning will bring us closer to Syrian artistic expression and will allow us to reflect on basic, and enduring concepts about the relationship of art to politics.
