Our World Is Burning

Our World Is Burning  - Our World Is Burning
A political view of international contemporary creation seen from the Gulf region, where wars and diplomatic tensions have constantly determined the history of the early 21st century (exhibition catalogue).
The title of the exhibition “Our World Is Burning” refers to the human dramas, which the successive conflicts in this region have caused—and still do—but also to the ecological crisis and environmental catastrophes, such as immensely destructive forest fires, from Amazonia to Siberia, without forgetting California and Australia. But fire is not just a statement of danger. It is also a symbol of the powerful democratic impetus experienced in this region since the Arab Springs. The exhibition thus affirms that artworks have the ability to intervene by adopting a position when confronted with the disorders of the world. Fire then refers to the intensity of artistic creation.
