This collection is an expression of Kurdish art, in keeping with the global and democratic spirit of Imago Mundi, and with the conviction that if we tear a culture from the world, we annihilate a colour, a scent, a part of its wealth. This is the most far-reaching body of research completed to date on the creativity of the world’s largest group of people without a state: 115 artists from the various Kurdish communities in Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria and the diaspora. A cataloguing of works that took more than two years to complete, involving both emerging young talents and established names, recipients of major international recognitions (Biennale, Documenta). A mosaic of identities brought together on the small Imago Mundi canvas, pieces of a cross-border dialogue that takes place in a land without borders or wars: that of contemporary art.
