“It was quite a challenge to bring together a study of these places that are so complex so I wanted to be driven by ideas as my organizing principle,” she said, “I didn’t go country by country…. With the exception of Iran and Turkey, all of the countries featured here have gone through some form of colonial treatment in recent centuries so that is an important theme.” The exhibition explores narratives of origin, ideologies of architecture and—most timely—the politics of migration.”
