Louisiana Museum | Arab Contemporary

31 Jan – 4 May 2014

'Arab Contemporary' is the second chapter in the series “Architecture, Culture and Identity” – and is a successor to the exhibition 'New Nordic' which Louisiana Museum of Modern Art showed in 2012. The series is about how architecture is both a bearer of identity and promotes the shaping of the cultural distinctiveness of a country or a region. 

Just as there are ongo­ing discussions of whether anything specifically Nordic exists, the exhibition ARAB CONTEMPORARY attempts to home in on features shared by the Arab countries – from the Arabian Peninsula through Lebanon to Morocco. The Arab world is first and foremost connected by language, but there are other common features that point both to a shared understanding of space and a visual culture where one can draw lines from calligraphy over certain construction elements to architecture on the very grand scale.
