The Screening will be in English and the Discussion will be in Arabic and English.
In our next meetup of “Hiwar Art Club”, you’re invited to attend the screening and open discussion on “Change” art documentary from “Art21” film series.
How do artists respond to a world in flux? In what ways do artists act as agents of change, and what kinds of aesthetic choices do they make to express it?
Our screening will feature artists: Ai Weiwei and El Anatsui who bear witness, through their work, to transformation—cultural, material, and aesthetic—and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects.
