Jaber Al Azmeh, Nazgol Ansarinia and Hera Büyüktaşcıyan

Jaber Al Azmeh, Nazgol Ansarinia and Hera Buyuktaşciyan are featured in the new publication Reflections: contemporary art of the Middle East and North Africa, bringing together an extraordinary collection of work from the British Museum for the first time.

The British Museum has been acquiring the work of Middle Eastern and North African artists since the 1980s, and the collection – principally works on paper – is one of the most extensive in the public sphere. Collected within the context of a museum of history, the works offer insights into the nature of civil societies, the complex politics of the region, and cultural traditions in their broadest sense, from the relationship with Islamic art to the deep engagement with literature.

With essays by Venetia Porter, Charles Tripp and Natasha Morris.
