May 23 – Culture at Konsthall

Växjö Konsthall director Filippa de Vos gave us a tour of their newest exhibition. Two veins – Iraq and Sweden. The exhibition presents two artists who reside in Iraq – Ahmed Nussaif and Hasan Al Sabagh – along with Swedish-Iraqi Jafer Taoun (Malmö), Taghreed Hashem (Stockholm), Falah Al Ani (Norrkoping) and Heider Ali (Växjö). These artists show many visions of Iraq, ancient, almost exotic, and the far bleaker vision, saturated by conflict and violence.
