Arab Contemporary, Architecture, culture and identity exhibition

Two years after the "New Nordic" exhibition, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk (Denmark) presents the second exhibition in the Architecture, culture, identity series, a look at "Contemporary Arab" architecture.
The exhibition focuses on new cities such as Dubai, ancient civilisations and new buildings, presenting work by important architectural studios such as, to name only a few, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, X-Architects, Foster & Partners and Henning Larsen Architects.

The exhibition documents how architecture expresses identity with repercussions on the basic distinguishing features of the culture of a country or region, through drawings, photographs, installations, films and models. It casts light on the shared features of architectural elements and visual culture in an attempt to answer the question of what Arab identity is in the highly varied context of the Arab world, which includes 22 countries with different lifestyles, cultures and landscapes which all share a common language.
