Global Futures Forum 2013 at the Mosaic Room, London


10 YEARS ON: Art and Everyday Life in Iraq and Iran This two-day public forum will open wide discussions about society, culture and everyday life in Iraq. For decades, the Western media has shown these countries as threats to global peace – this event brings together specialists and professionals in mass media, the visual performing arts, cultural and social studies and history to examine Western representations of Iraq and Iran. More importantly, this forum offers diverse and alternative accounts of real life in Iraq and Iran today. The meeting over two days includes invited speakers, roundtable discussions and sections for short papers on the four topics outlined above. Allotted discussion time will enable considerable interactive involvement from audiences throughout the event. This event is organised by Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art, Design & Media, in partnership with Ibraaz Articulating Dissensus an essay by Daria Kirsanova read the essay on IBRAAZ
