Domestic Cultures in the Arab World : Living Under the Crescent Moon
NETHERLANDS
ROTTERDAM  •  Kunsthal  •  Ongoing
 
The exhibition demonstrates the diversity of domestic lifestyles between Morocco, Syria and the Arabian peninsula – from the nomadic tents of the Tuareg or Bedouins to Moroccan kasbahs; from the grand courtyard houses in cities such as Marrakech, Damascus or Cairo to buildings by twentieth-century architects like Hassan Fathy, Elie Mouyal or Abdelwahed El-Wakil. Numerous models and reconstructed room environments provide visitors with an opportunity to physically experience various building types, while domestic objects such as ceramics, textiles, tools and architectural elements offer impressions of everyday customs. Specially for the exhibition, numerous photographs and films were produced that document forms of domestic life in the Arab world virtually unknown to outsiders.
