Safar Voyage: Contemporary Works by Arab, Iranian, and Turkish Artists

Fereshteh Daftari and Jill Baird

In this companion volume to the 2013 MOA exhibition Safar/Voyage, curators Fereshteh Daftari and Jill Baird construct a journey through the work of eighteen contemporary Arab, Iranian, and Turkish artists. The text—illustrated with over fifty colour photographs, archival images and maps—navigates themes of migration, dislocation, and changing identity and addresses the impact of war and revolution on individuals, communities and culture in this highly contested region of the world.
