The Pop-Up Mathaf returns to London for two days to re-imagine the city’s historical, contemporary and fictional Arab presence. In light of the prevalence of art related to the Arab world in London’s galleries and museums, the programme critically considers the city’s role as a home for generations of diasporic artists, writers and musicians among its many migrants and exiles.
The programme also launches a year of research, map-making, publications and activity online, exploring, for example, London’s role as a historic location for imagining the Arab Orient, and its more recent role as a pan-Arab financial, political and media hub.
