Shubbak Festival: 10 To 10

Sold out

Iraq | UK

Shubbak invites photographer Hassan Al-Mousaoy to work with recently arrived young people in West London, charting their daily lives in sequences of personal photographs. Participants will select, edit and install their work in the intimate setting of the Bush Theatre Attic. The images follow the rhythm of their day.

Based in London for 11 years, Hassan Al-Mousaoy’s unique project My Life in Pictures brought together images taken by young Iraqis from his first visit back to Iraq with images by young migrants in London.

It is free entry and the exhibition is unticketed.

Shubbak (meaning ‘window’ in Arabic) is London’s largest biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture. Founded in 2011 by the Mayor of London, Shubbak connects London audiences and communities with the best of contemporary Arab culture through ambitious festival programmes of premieres and commissions of visual arts, film, music, theatre, dance, literature and debate.

Presented with additional support from Paul Hamlyn Foundation, in collaboration with the British Red Cross, Young Roots, and Barnet Refugee Service.
