Spiegel: New Life Stirring in Arab Cultural Capital

This article from Der Spiegel highlights Iraq’s increasingly flourishing art scene.

“Fadaam has high hopes for the new generation of Iraqis, those currently at art school. “There are a few genuine talents studying out there,” he says. In a few years these up-and-comers will hopefully breathe some new life into the Iraqi art scene, turning Baghdad back into a cultural metropolis once again. Fadaam believes that the state of art is closely linked with the country’s own future. “If the situation improves, if young people can express love and happiness in their work, then not only does Iraqi art have a future, but also Iraq itself,” he concludes.”
