Michael Rakowitz

9 July '17 at 1:00 pm - 9 June '17 at 2:00 pm

Join us for a lecture with artist Michael Rakowitz to discuss his recent work including; ‘Dar Al Sulh’(Domain of Conciliation) , a unique supper club hosted by The Mosaic Rooms, London, and his upcoming commission for The Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square; ‘The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist’, a work that uses tin cans to recreate an ancient monument destroyed by ISIS.

Drawing on his experiences as a Jewish Iraqi-American, Rakowitz will discuss resilience in the face of threats to culture, the impact of the destruction of Middle Eastern heritage and also explore how the notion of identity has informed and affected his work.

This event is part of the V&A’s Culture in Crisis Series, and programmed in conjunction with The Mosaic Rooms.
