Cross-border contemporary female artists from the Arabian Mediterranean Region


Arwa Abouon, "Abouon Mama".

Over the course of the Arab Spring the region to the south of the Mediterranean has been undergoing a state of transformation, the events of which are followed in Europe with great interest, but also with hope and scepticism. With respect to content, the focus of this exhibition is on artists' critical investigation of various thematic aspects of the concept of borders, the attitudes and approaches to them, and the strategies of overcoming them. Questions emerge within the context of the show, which adopt a clear position on this issue and elaborate a range of solutions, addressing regionally specific, political and cultural aspects. In ZKM, Lorenzstraße 19, Karlsruhe, Germany.
