Jaou Tunis 2015
Sultan Sooud Al-Qassemi: Writer
The third iteration of JAOU took place at the National Museum of Bardo in Tunis from 28–29 of May, 2015. Artists, curators, academics, lawyers and diplomats discussed 'Visual Culture in an Age of Conflict'. Panel themes included the future of art institutions, artistic practices, international relations in the Middle East, and Platform 009's focus: performance art across the region.
Ibraaz invited a number of JAOU participants to shares their experiences. Here, writer Sultan Sooud Al-Qassemi explains why it was important for him to attend JAOU and to be in Tunis's Bardo Museum.
