Over my Eyes: Stories of Iraq
4. 12. 2018–3. 3. 2019
The exhibition offers an unfamiliar perspective of Iraq through the eyes of a generation of young local photographers. The work of these photographers forms a unique and previously unseen view of Iraq and captures the fragmented picture of contemporary life across the country: from the vastness of the mountainous northern borderlands, to a multiplicity of scenes across the country, with the fading flashbacks of its recent history and the effects of the ongoing conflict.
