10 Years On: Art and Everyday Life in Iraq

Ibraaz Talks: Slavs and Tatars

005 / 27 June 2013

Ibraaz Talks is a series of specially curated conversations with artists, curators and writers.  Each participant is invited to respond to a particular issue or keyword that they feel in some way addresses formal and conceptual issues affecting contemporary visual culture.  This response, from Slavs and Tatars, was recorded during the conference 10 Years On: Art and Everyday Life in Iraq and Iran, organised by Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art, Design & Media, in partnership with Ibraaz, which took place in London on 7–8 June this year.

About the author

Slavs and Tatars

Slavs and Tatars is a faction of polemics and intimacies devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia. The collective’s work spans several media, disciplines, and a broad spectrum of cultural registers (high and low) focusing on an oft-forgotten sphere of influence between Slavs, Caucasians and Central Asians.
