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

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.
