Tammam Azzam & Ammar al-Beik
Away From Home
21 February - 30 April 2016
Tammam Azzam and Ammar al-Beik are included in the collective exhibition Away From Home at Kunstverein Grafschaft Bentheim in Neuenhaus, Germany, on display from 21 February until 30 April 2016. The focus of the exhibition is the ongoing conflict in Syria and the effect it has on those experiencing forced migration.
Works from al-Beik’s Lost Images series will be included alongside some of the most circulated digital prints of Azzam’s Syrian Museum series, a body of work that went viral on social media and was widely reprinted by international news outlets. The Syrian Museum series imagines well-known works of art against the backdrop of Syria’s devastated cityscapes, giving new meaning to universal imagery.
